- 2-1/4 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- Mix altogether with a wire whisk and set aside.
In a mixer bowl, cream:
- 1/2 cup Crisco (no other brand!)
- 1/2 cup room temperature butter (no margarine!!!!)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
When all well incorporated, add the dry ingredients and mix well.
Add 2 cup dark chocolate bits (I use Guittard) and 1 cup mini chips.
Scoop onto parchment-lined sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes – remove cookies before they look done. They will continue to bake a bit after you remove them from the oven.
NOTE: To be even more decadent, after cookies are cooled, melt some more of the dark chocolate bits (with a tsp of Crisco) and then dip the cookies in the chocolate
