Patti's Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Submitted by Patti Wilson


Preheat oven to 375º

1 cup white shortening (DO NOT SUBSTITUTE)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Mix well with electric mixer.  Then add:
2 cups plus 4 TBSP flour
1 tsp soda
Mix again, then add:
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Drop by heaping teaspoon on to cookie sheets and bake 10 -14 minutes.

Note:  I always double this recipe and try to freeze one bag, but they always seem to disappear before they get to the freezer, especially if my sister, brothers, nieces or nephews are around.......
