Chocolate chip cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups shortening
1 cup and 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup and 4 Tablespoons sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp water
3 cups and 6 Tablespoons flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

cream shortening and sugars together

add eggs and beat until fluffy

add water and vanilla

mix in dry ingredients and blend together. add more flour until dough just starts to pull cleanly off the sides of the mixer. add more water if not sticky enough.

fold in chocolate chips

spoon onto un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes at 370 degrees (or until you start to see tan on the tops)

quickly and carefully remove off cookie sheet and cool, or eat immediately with a glass of milk.

side note: the weird measurements are because the recipe was created for Utah's altitude... random fact. Also, if you don't like chocolate chips, and instead prefer white chocolate chip macadamia cookies, replace 1 cup chocolate chips, with 1/2 cup macadamia nut (slightly chopped), 1/2 cup white chocolate chips.
