My Chocolate Chip Cookies

Having returned from the dentist for the second time this week, I really needed to just cook. I did splurge on salmon but that will be another post. It didn't matter what just anything to get my mind off things. I love playing with recipes to make my own creation so today was no acception. I started with a tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe from Betty Crocker's Cookbook by favourite recipe except my husband doesn't like nuts in cookies and I had no chocolate chips. What I did have was multi-coloured chocolate chips and a left over from Christmas.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

This really is a very modified recipe but one that fit my mood today. I like the base but then play with it from there. I used the Kitchen Aid® to mix but you can use a regular mixer then just stir in the chocolate.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
2/3 c shortening
2/3 c butter
1 c raw granulated sugar
1 c brown sugar (packed)
2 eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla
2 c unbleached flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
6 oz multi-coloured chocolate chips
1/2 bar or about 4 oz Cȏtes' Ore dark chocolate bar

Cut chocolate bar into 1/4" pieces. Place shortening, butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla in mixer and mix until well mixed. Stir dry ingredients together, leave chocolates until last. Add one cup at a time mixing well. Stir in the chocolate chips and chocolate bar chips. Bake in a pre-heated oven 350ºF on convection heat until golden brown but not crisp.
