I’ve been using this recipe for years and years. I don’t know exactly how many years but well before email as the article says to MAIL in recipe requests not email them!!
This recipe was from a column in the Toronto Star  that was called Fare Exchange and was written by Mary McgGrath. It was submitted by Lynne Anne Anfield of Cherry Valley. I have no doubt in my mind that I’ve been using this recipe for well over 10 years. It’s the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I have ever used. I’m pretty loyal to baking recipes that work!! The cookies are soft and gooey – just like they should be. (in my humble opinion).
Lynne Anne’s Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter

1/2 cup shortening

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

2 cups of all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups chocolate chips

Instructions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream together butter and shortening. Gradually add sugars, creaming well. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking soda. Blend into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Chill dough for a few minutes. Drop by spoonfuls on to a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown and the edges and slightly undercooked in the centre. Let stand on sheet for 3-5 minutes. Remove cookies from baking sheet and set on a wire rack to finish cooling.

PS I am a huge believer in the following kitchen gadget. I spray it with Pam and use it when I bake cookies so that they come out nice and round.

Happy Baking!!
