Chocolate Chip Cookies by

Source: Betty Crocker

This is the recipe I have used since first married. I think my mother used this recipe too for her chocolate chip cookies.


1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup nuts, chopped (optional)
1 - 6 oz pkg chocolate chips


Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix sugars, butter, shortening, egg and vanilla. Mix remaining ingredients together then stir into sugar/butter mixture.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until light brown, 8-10 mins. Cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet.

Christmas Cookies: Stir in 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candy or candy canes, with the remaining ingredients.
