This is our family’s favorite cookie! A big soft chewy chocolate chip cookie.




  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening, and sugars.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Add vanilla; mix well.
  4. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl; add to creamed mixture.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Drop by generously rounded tablespoons (I use a medium scooper…probably more like 2-3 tablespoons) onto ungreased baking sheets.
  7. Bake for at 350° 10-12 minutes (or 13-15 minutes for the big ones) or until golden brown.
  8. Cool on wire rack.
