Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

We didn't have a lot going on this weekend so Sis and I thought we'd make some of Meg's Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I found the recipe on her Whatever blog a long time ago.  It's been sitting in my buffet drawer waiting for some day.  Guess today's the day.

Here's what you need:
1 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda dissolved in 3 T. water
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
12 oz. package chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
Once you figure out how to work the mixer...

"How do these go in here?"
"How do you get the top to go down?"
"What does this do?"
"Ok, I get it now."
Moving on...
Oh.  Mygosh!  Do you SEE the dirt under her nails!?
...and we really need to practice cracking eggs, not squishing them.
Cream together shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla.
Add soda dissolved in water.
Blend in flour, baking soda and salt.
Add chocolate chips.

The recipe said we could either drop spoon fulls onto cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
dump all the dough into sheet pan & bake for 20 minutes or until entire top of cookie is brown.

We chose to dump & be done with it.
Golden goodness.
They really ARE the Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Brother was a little out of sorts because they were square.  "Where's the round cookies?" he said.
So Big Daddy cut his square into a circle and all was good.
Every last bite!
Thank you Meg for this great recipe.  I do believe we will be making these quite often.

If you would like to make your own, you can find the origional recipe HERE.


  1. Looks yummy. I like how you made them into bars instead of round cookies. :)

  2. oh man.....now i really want some cookies!!!

    glad you like them.
    they are so good....they don't last ONE day at our house.

  3. I would love a 'square' cookie right now! What a great idea to spread the dough in a bar pan. Love it.
    You have a darling helper too!

  4. Yum! Those cookies look amazing! I want some now! :O
