Simply the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie


  • 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
