Good, let's get started!
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shorting
2 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and a half cups chocolate chips
Combine flour, baking soda and salt together. In another bowl combine softened butter, shorting, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Beat until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually add flour mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.
Bake 8 minutes.
This is the important part, don't bake over 8 minutes. Cookies will come out of the oven looking like they are gooey and not done, trust me they are.
Allow them to cool on the cookie sheet they will stiffen up a bit but will still be soft and gooey. Add a glass of milk and get ready to taste the best chocolate chip cookies ever!
