Chocolate Chip Cookies I


My mother says this is the original chocolate chip cookie recipe passed down from my grandmother. For bars just press the dough into a jelly roll pan and bake. This recipe makes a very small batch. I triple the recipe and use 1/2 cup margarine and 1 cup shortening instead of all shortening. It seems to make a softer cookie.


  • ½ cup shortening
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ⅛ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together shortening, brown sugar and white sugar. Mix in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter until moistened. Mix in the walnuts and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges are light brown.
