(...Drum Roll...)

The actual BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe EVER...Really. 

Here you go...because I love you. :)

The {Actual} BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

4 T. Unsalted Butter (Room Temp) 
2 T. Shortening (Trust me on this one.) 
1/2 C. Granulated Sugar
1 C. Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 C. Flour
2 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tsp. Corn Starch 
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/4 C. Chocolate Chips (Good quality Chocolate Chips will change your life!)


1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. Set aside. 
3. Cream room temp butter with the granulated and brown sugar until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). 
4. Add eggs to the butter mixture one at a time until well incorporated. Add that vanilla now too. 
5. While your mixer is on low speed, slowly incorporate the flour mixture into the butter, sugar, and egg mixture until well combined. 
6. Add in the chocolate chips and combine.
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 min. Once those bottom edges give the slightest hint of turning brown, take those babies out. There's nothing that disappoints me more than an over-baked cookie. :)
