If I've already posted these before, Im sorry but they are the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have found..they disappear faster then I can make them..super good from freezer, it makes a lot..perfect for sharing.

Confessions of a Bakaholic choc. chip cookies

  • 2 C sugar
  • 2 C brown sugar
  • 2 C shortening
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 5 C flour
  • 24 oz. chocolate chips
  • Cream sugars and shortening. Add eggs, vanilla and almond. Sift together soda, salt and flour. Add dry ingredients to sugar and shortening. Fold in chocolate chips. Bake on greased cookie sheets for 8-10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.
  • This makes a ton (6 dozen) of cookies. If you don’t need one ton, you can easily half or quarter the recipe. We like to make the whole batch and freeze some dough for later. Just roll it into cookie shape balls, place on a cookie sheet and put it in the freezer until they are very firm (about an hour). Once they are frozen, drop them all into freezer bags. When you are craving cookies, take out some dough balls, let them sit on your counter for 20 minutes or so, and bake.
  • Make sure you have plenty of cold milk on hand.
  • Want soft cookies, make sure you take them out when they aren't quite done..a trick I learned many years ago..
