Mia’s Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipes / Monday, August 29th, 2011

This is my own recipe which I came up with when I was probably about 12 or so.

1 1/2c vegetable shortening
1c 2T brown sugar
1c 2T granulated sugar
1 1/2t vanilla
3/4t water
3 eggs
3c unsifted flour
1 1/2t baking soda
1 1/2t salt
2 or 3c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Cream shortening, sugars, vanilla, water, & eggs until light and fluffy.

Mix flour, soda, & salt in a bowl and blend into creamed mixture.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Using a teaspoon, drop cookies 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet.

Bake 10 minutes. (I always have to check mine at about 8 minutes, depends on the oven)
