Jenny's Family Recipe - Chocolate Chip Cookies

For the morning show bake-off I decided to make the chocolate chip cookies I grew up making with my my mom. I believe the recipe comesllllfrom an old Betty Crocker cookbook but I have it handwritten on some notecards. Here's the recipe if you want to try them yourself!


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (6 ounces) of semisweet chocolate chips


Heat oven to 375. Mix sugars, butter, shortening, egg, and vanilla. Stir in the remaining ingredients.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until light brown, 8-10 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet. Make about 1 1/2 dozed
