The Best Ever Choc Chip Cookies

(recipe, Maura Berger)


No lie - this is a perfect recipe!


  1. 3¼ cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 tsp. baking soda
  3. 1 tsp. kosher salt
  4. 1 cup sugar
  5. 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  6. ⅔ cup unsalted butter, softened
  7. ⅔ cup vegetable shortening
  8. 2 large eggs
  9. 2 tsp. vanilla
  10. 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Whisk flour, baking soda and salt together; Set Aside.
  2. Cream the sugar, butter, shortening, eggs and vanilla together.
  3. Stir Flour Mixture into Creamed mixture.
  4. Then Stir in chocolate chips. (Usually I just use the semi-sweet)
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.
  6. Use a cookie scoop (2 tbs per scoop/large scoop) to measure and drop dough 2" apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. (I use parchment paper)
  7. Bake on center rack of oven 12-14 minutes, until lightly browned edges are set.
  8. Remove from oven; leave cookies on baking sheet for 2 minutes firm up.
  9. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  10. If you are reusing the warm baking sheet, reduce baking time slightly.
  11. * I used these cookies with Edy’s light vanilla ice cream to make “chipwiches” – they LOVED it!
