By far my favorite cookie in the whole wide world is the classic chocolate chip cookie. Make it a la mode or even better, 2 warm cookies with some Blue Bell vanilla bean ice cream sandwiched between them: I’M SOLD.
This latest recipe is just an update on the classic. Inspired by the variety of chocolates I saw at the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory in San Francisco, I decided to combine all of my favorite flavors in one cookie. Milk chocolate chunks, white chocolate chips, and dark chocolate morsels all in one cookie: helllllo cookie, get in my belly.Here’s the recipe:
1 cup Butter Flavored Crisco Shortening
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
3/4 cup White Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/8 tsp. Cinnamon
2 and 1/4 cups Flour
3/4 cup Dark Chocolate Morsels
3/4 cup White Chocolate Chips
3/4 cup Milk Chocolate Chunks
Preheat the oven at 375 degrees.
Cream the shortening, white sugar, and brown sugar together in an electric mixer until light and fluffy (1-2 minutes). Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until fully combined. Add the salt, baking soda, flour, and cinnamon and try not to make a mess while combining the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Finally, add all of the delicious chocolate chips and mix one final time. Drop the dough by tablespoons onto a cookie sheet and bake for 8-9 minutes.
I made these cookies for my soccer team and they all liked them. So in my book, that makes them a winner! Enjoy, everyone!
