Nothing makes every trouble in the world go away like a chocolate chip cookies.  Clearly home made chocolate chip cookies are the only way to go!

For years, Bruce has made the same recipe for his chocolate chip cookies. The combination of butter with shortening, and just brown sugar gives these cookies a chewy, rich flavor that can’t be beat.

We truly believe that these chocolate chip cookies will be a must make over at your house!

  • Bake cookies for 11-13 minutes, turning and rotating racks half way thru. Look for a golden brown, to ensure you do not over bake cookies.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet, and then remove with a spatula to cool on a wire rack.

Make a double batch, and scoop out extra balls of dough and freeze on a sheet of parchment, and then store in a container in the freezer. This way you can have fresh cookies whenever you want! Be sure to allow them to soften slightly before you bake them.
