  • 1 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 1/2 tsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups Gold Medal bread flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream together your shortening and your sugars. Beat until it is light and fluffy.
  • Add your eggs one at a time and mix until it is combined.
  • Add your vanilla and water.
  • Add your dry ingredients and mix until the dough has come together. I like to add about a 1/2 cup at a time. If your dough is still sticky, add about 1/4 extra flour until you're able to grab a pinch and it doesn't stick to your hands.
  • With a spatula, stir in your chocolate chips. If you want the addition of nuts, this is the time to add them.
  • Use a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop and place dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until it is golden on the edges. Transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy.
