Dawn's Top Secret Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mix together:
1/2 c. butter...real butter
1/2 c. shortening
Add 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar and mix again.
Then add 1 tsp. vanilla and 2 eggs. Mix.

Then add 2 1/2 cups of flour sometimes more.  1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt and mix again.

Try some of the dough...isn't it yummy?

Add 2 cups. semi sweet chocolate chips.  Try more dough...delicious.

Scoop out onto a tray.  Bake 400 degrees for 8 mins. At least that is how it works for our oven!

Enjoy.  Pass out to all the neighborhood kids so you can make more in 4 days!

Addendum:  For a festive cookie, try Adrienne Dial's trick.  Chop Andes mints into 1/8th instead of chocolate chips.  We used 54 pieces which equaled nearly 2 cups.  Yummy!!


  1. Making these right now. The dough was amazing!

  2. "Try the dough...Isn't it yummy?" Yes, Dawn...too, too yummy!
