Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Rodelle Baker's Extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 16oz package chocolate chips
  • Option: 4oz pecans, chopped

Directions

Cream the sugars and shorting in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Beat until light, approximately 5 minutes at medium speed. Add eggs, one at a time. Add Rodelle Baker's Extract.

  • In a small bowl, stir dry ingredients together and add to the creamed mixture.
  • Stir in the chips (and nuts if adding).
  • At this point, if you're ready to devour some chocolate chip cookie heaven, you can bake the cookies on a parchment line baking sheet in a 350°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Use a tablespoon to measure out the dough dollups.
  • The best opinion is to roll the dough into a log on a piece of parchment paper. The diameter will be the approximate diameter of the cookies. Wrap the log in the paper tightly and twist the ends closed. Chill until completely firm.
  • When ready to bake, cut the log into 1/2-inch slices.
  • Arrange on a parchment lined sheet pan, and bake at 350°F for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove to a wire rack to cool.
