Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oops, it's been a few weeks between recipes! This is a recipe from my husband's childhood. These are his mom's go to chocolate chip cookies. It's been a while since I've made them, but we made them as a family a few weeks ago, and it's obvious why the recipe has been around forever. They looked pretty and they tasted great too!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Crisco (I used butter flavored)
1 cup margarine (2 sticks)
3 eggs
3 tsp vanilla
5 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
12 ounces chocolate chips

Cream together the Crisco, margarine and sugars until light and airy (about 3-4 minutes), mix in the eggs and vanilla. Mix together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add gradually to the wet ingredients until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop with a mall scoop. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
