This chocolate chip cookie recipe is one of the best I've ever had. It has a soft, chewy interior while the exterior gives the perfect crunch.
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.
With a spatula, stir in your chocolate chips. If you want the addition of nuts, this is the time to add them.
Use a 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.
