A staple at my in-laws' house around the holidays, these chocolate chip cookies are amazingly gooey. This recipe yields a huge amount, so busy moms can freeze leftover dough to pop in the oven and have fresh-baked cookies within minutes. Enjoy! I know I will.
Chocolate Chip Cookies (yields 6-7 dozen)
1 stick butter (softened)
1 stick margarine (softened)
3/4 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream butter, margarine, shortening, and sugars together in a large bowl. Add eggs and mix well. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to the wet ingredients and stir carefully until all flour mixture is moistened. Add chocolate chips until evenly mixed. Form into small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Freeze dough for at least 45 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until light brown. Cool on wire rack and store in airtight container.
Dough can be frozen and placed in freezer bags until ready to bake.
