My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies created by Dr.JenLeddy

I have been using this recipe since 1993. The original version came from Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book. Over time, of course, I have changed it to suit my preferences. I am sure you and yours will love this very classic of classics as much as me and mine! NOTE: I use old fashioned shortening with animal fats when I make these.

    thanks chef for a terrific recipe!! the whole hive loved them, i got 56 good sized cookies from this recipe.....the only change i made was to add in chopped walnuts......i also was a little shy on choc. chips so made up the small difference by covering the difference with white chips also......good texture and i liked how they didn't go flat....i earned my crown today!

    I also halved the recipe and added walnuts. Great cookies, chewier than I was expecting, I'm used to cookies baking down nearly flat. I would bake these again.

    Yum! I easily halved the batch and used half semi sweet chunks and half milk chocolate chips. I even added some toasted pecans as a personal choice. These are delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)
