I have always made yummy chocolate chip cookies over the years. I had what I thought was a great recipe. That was until a dear lady brought cookies into our classroom as a treat last week. These cookies were AMAZING. They were thick, chewy, filled with chocolate and big! I asked the dear lady for the recipe and she gladly handed it over. So this weekend I went to work to make the cookies.
Here is the recipe for these delicious cookies, that you would be proud to call them your own!
6 c. flour
2 c. shortening
2 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. hot water
1 – 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus one cup of choc. chips
Mix shortening, sugars together, mix in eggs and vanilla and hot water. Mix in dry ingredients. Dough will be thick. Stir in 12 oz. bag of chips.
Here is the different part….Grab about a golf ball size chunk of dough, flatten it, and fill with 4-5 chips. Roll back up into a ball and dip top in choc. chip so the top of cookie has 8-10 chips on the top. This cookie can handle lots of chips! 🙂
Bake at 350, 10-12 min. Grab a glass of milk and eat as soon as it cools slightly!
You can see how thick the cookies are, and how those chips in the middle melt so nicely into the thick of the cookie.
