Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

My little 10 year old brother recently wanted me to teach him how to cook, so naturally I start with chocolate chip cookies. Completely from scratch, I got this recipe from my high school Foods class.

I made him wear one of my aprons 😉

Yield: about 15 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
