Amy's Favorite Cookies

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

3 eggs

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.
