These Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best cookies I have ever made. I've been making this recipe for many years. They are delicious and one of my husbands favorite desserts. They are yummy when they are warm but they are great anytime!
1 cup butter flavored shortening
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate but use your favorite!)
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the shortening, butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. When it is combined, mix in the eggs. Add both types of flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix the dough, or the cookies will turn out flat. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the chocolate chips and chopped pecans (if using). Again, only stir until just combined.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray. Bake cookies at 325 degrees convection for 10-12 minutes. I rotate the pan halfway through the baking time to help the cookies bake more evenly. If your oven does not have a convection setting, bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
