Recipe by Kim D.

This is the chocolate chip cookie recipe I've been using ever since I was given the recipe by a friend at work, who is an excellent baker! My kids love these cookies and request that I make them often!

The cookies turned out nicely in shape and maintained a soft center. The shortening lent to this not having as much flavor as I'm used to getting with butter. I'd recommend using butter flavored shortening.
