When we had our (socially distant & safe) family vacation in Hilton Head this year, mom made chocolate chip cookies to snack on and they made me realize how much I loved them. They were the best as a kid and turns out, just as delicious as an adult. I had another craving for them recently so whipped them up.

Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1/3 C soft shortening
  • 1/3 c butter
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 c flour
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6oz choc chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix first 6 ingredients in bowl, stir in next 3, then thoroughly work in chocolate chips. Drop dough 2″ apart on baking sheet (~1″ ). Bake 8-10 min. Cool on wire rack.
