Sister in laws Birthday cookies 09

From: Better homes and gardens: New Cook Book 10th edition

My sister in laws birthday was today so I made her Chocolate chip cookies.

what I changed:
I used chunks of chocholate instead of chips
dark brown sugar
a little more shortening than butter because I ran out of butter
I sprayed my pan just in case and I made balls of dough in my hands and they were large cookies.

They turned out great and they tasted very soft like cake.

Chocholate chip cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup margarine or butter
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup backed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 12 ounce package semisweet chocolate pieces

In a mixing bowl beat the shortening and butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 20 seconds. Add about half of the flour, the brown sugar, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and baking soda. Beat mixture until thoroughly combined. Beat in the remaing flour. Stir in the chocolate pieces.
