These have to be the best chocolate chip cookies ever! They're so easy to make, but they're incredible. Mommy used vanilla-infused white sugar to make them and it was amazing! To make the sugar, take a jar and pour sugar in so it's half-full. Then put in a 3 inch long vanilla bean. Fill rest of jar with sugar. Close tightly and then wait a week. The sugar is amazing for baking and in hot drinks!
1 cup butter flavored shortening
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla .Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Note: I found I needed a little longer than this with a regular oven. If you have a convection oven, then 350 F for 10 minutes is perfect. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
