Description

I think the combo of shortening and oil is a little different, since I usually only use real butter for cookies. These turn out really nice. They don’t spread out, they stay chunky and have a shortbread consistency.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 cup Shortening
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 4 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 4 teaspoons Cream Of Tartar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

I large bowl, beat together white sugar, brown sugar, oil and shortening until smooth.

Stir in eggs, and vanilla beating well after each addition.

In medium bowl, combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Stir into sugar mixture.

Finally, fold in the chocolate chips and nuts (optional).

Drop by big spoonfuls onto cookies sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 min. Cool on sheet and remove.

I made these tonight, and while they were definitely not the chocolate chip cookie texture and flavor I was going for, they were oddly addicting. If you like really flaky shortbread kinds of textures, this is a great chocolate chip cookie to try. I guess I’m just partial to the tried & true chewy cookie versions. Just wasn’t my thing.

I just made these … They looked great and had a nice texture, but they tasted a little bland.

I just ate one of these fresh out of the oven, and I love them! The cream of tartar is a great addition. Reminds me of some bakery cookies I had when I was little. I made some really big and some small, and they are great both ways.

This is the recipe my grandma uses and always has! I love these cookies and actually prefer to eat them straight from the freezer! I remember sneaking so many of these out of her freezer when I was a kid.
Great recipe!

Made these today and the flavor is absolutely wonderful…just what I remember from the best chocolate cookies I ate as a child. I deviated from the recipe slightly and used half the amount of cream of tartar and milk chocolate chips instead. Thank you!
