Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This is the chocolate chip cookie recipe I used to win the blue ribbon at the Orange County Fair. I usually make the dough ahead of time and keep try to keep it in the fridge prior to baking. I think the cookies bake up nicer if the dough is cold. And of course nothing beats a hot chocolate chip cookie straight from the oven.

Beat together until fluffy

  • 1/2 cup soft butter
  • 1/2 cup butter flavor crisco
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon good quality vanilla
  • 2 eggs

Sift together

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine with butter/sugar mixture

Fold in 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Bake 12 minutes at 325*
