Hershey's Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I love baking cookies and bake cookies all year long. However, during this time of the season I really go nuts in my kitchen and do an abundance of cookie baking. Just last week I made 5 batches of these Hershey's Chocolate Chip Cookies! I kept one batch for us and gave the rest away to family and friends. By far...this is one of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes!

This recipe will yield 7 to 8 dozen cookies depending on how large you make them.

Hershey's Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

1 cup butter-flavored shortening
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups Hershey's chocolate chips

Cream together the shortening, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and then add them to the mixture. Mix together the all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl and gradually add to the wet ingredients in the first bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand until well blended into the cookie batter.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Drop the batter by well-rounded teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Place sheet into the oven and bake for 8 minutes or until barely brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Store them in an airtight container.
