Chocolate Chip Cookies

Celebrating the end of the school year with some cookies today.  Recently my son told me he checked the blog, but he couldn't find the chocolate chip cookies...the ones with no oatmeal.  I hadn't realized it, but I checked, and it's true, that Cindy's Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies both have oatmeal.  Apparently, I have a subconscious theme going on.  Sorry Jake, here it is, the one without the oatmeal.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
2/3 c. margarine
2/3 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 pkg. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped nuts (opt.)

In a large mixing bowl, cream together shortening and margarine with sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.  Add dry ingredients and mix to combine. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Scoop dough on to ungreased cookie sheets, bake at 350 for 10-12 min.  Take out when doughy looking.  Let set on baking sheets for 1-2 min. before removing to wire rack to cool.  Makes 4 dozen.

Notes: I usually use about a cup of chocolate chips in this, some packages are 6 oz, some 12 oz. You use however many YOU want! :-)
