Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are great classic chocolate chip cookies. I saw it on the Food Network show "Good Eats" with Alton Brown. This was my favorite of his cookie recipes because it makes the cookies puffy, fat, and chewy ones instead of the thin, crispy type.
  • 1 cup shortening

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ tsp. vanilla

  • 2 ¼ cups cake flour

  • 1 tsp. coarse salt

  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder

  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Cream together shortening and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until well-mixed. Add vanilla. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients slowly to creamed mixture. After ingredients are fully combined, stir in chocolate chips.

Refrigerate cookie dough for at least an hour. Drop a heaping tablespoon of dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 375ºF for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly brown around the edges. Cool completely before storing in a sealed container.

Recipe can be modified for white chocolate or peanut butter chips or whatever else your taste buds desire.

Note: I sometimes make a double batch of this and keep the extra dough in a sealed container in the fridge for an extra couple days so that you can just scoop it onto the baking sheet and cook when friends or family visit.
