The Best Chocolate Chippers

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by bert2421

I was babysitting a friend's baby one day and she brought me some of these for a reward. I insisted on the recipe and here it is. These freeze very well, too, if you have them that long.

My mother-in-law has made these every day for 30 + years, and nobody ever gets tired of them. She is famous throughout the neighborhood for them. But the real secret is only baking them for about 8 minutes--they don't crisp up at all, they are very very soft. Just take them out about 1-2 minutes before you usually would think you should, and you will gain a reputation as the best baker around.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla until very fluffy.
  2. Sift together dry ingredients; stir into creamed mixture.
  3. Add chocolate chips.
  4. Refrigerate til well chilled.
  5. Drop from teaspoon 2" apart onto a cool greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
  7. If I'm in a hurry, I omit putting the dough in the fridge to chill. Still comes out fine.
