Chocolate Chip Cookies

These gourmet cookies are very rich and buttery tasting with a crisp exterior and a chewy center.

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (11-12 oz) package chocolate chips

1. Heat oven to 350 F.

2. Beat sugars, butter, shortening, vanilla and egg in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium sped until light and fluffy, or mix with a spoon.  Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff).  Stir in chocolate chips.

3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 10-12 minutes or until light brown.  Cool for 2 minutes, remove from cookie sheet to wire wrack to cool.  Enjoy with a tall glass of cold milk for dunkin!
