Mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies were my favourite cookies as a child. When they would start to dry out after being baked a few days, Mom would just throw a slice of bread in the container with the cookies and they would soften right up. They were so good…


  • 1/2 c. shortening
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. chocolate chips


Blend well the shortening, white and brown sugar until it’s a creamy texture. Add the vanilla and beaten egg and mix. Blend in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well then fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon onto a greased cooking sheet and flatten.

Again I didn’t get the baking time and temperature but try 350 degrees for 15 minutes. If they’re still not done, leave them in and check every 5 minutes until cooked. I’ll try to get the exact baking instructions soon.
