Chocolate Chip Cookies

By far the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made, these cookies also freeze well. The dough can also be frozen – you can have freshly baked cookies without the mess of making the dough!

Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 2½ cups shortening
  • 3¾ cups brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 5½ cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking soda

Using a stand mixer, cream shortening and brown sugar. Add milk, eggs, and vanilla; mix until well blended. Add flour, salt and baking soda; mix well. By hand, stir in chocolate chips.

Drop mixture by rounded spoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets.  Bake for 8-10 minutes at 325⁰F, or until lightly golden brown.
