The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER!

I love you all so much that I am sharing my chocolate chip cookie recipe!  This is big! 
I have been making these cookies since I was in high school for friends, family, teachers, bosses, you name it! These can get you out of trouble, into trouble, a date, a spouse actually ;) , and well they are just pretty darn good!

2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour 
{Self-rising four can be used but baking soda and 1/4 tsp salt must be omitted, still use just about 1/4 tsp of salt with the self rising flour}
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 bag of semi sweet or milk chocolate morsels

Step 1: Mix first four ingredients with a stand or hand mixer on high until fluffy and whipped consistency forms. The sugar should almost be disolved and the mixture should almost have doubled in size and be very light in color. {THIS IS KEY TO THE RECIPE!!}

Step 2: Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix well. 

Step 3: Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix. Then add in the four mixture slowly to the butter mixture and mix till combined, no longer.

Step 4: Finally just add in your chocolate chips and scoop out cookies onto a cookie sheet. 

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 min {give or take, based on the cookie size}.


Let me know what you and your friends and future boyfriends and husbands think!
