Pretty much all that you'd want from a traditional chocolate chip cookie. First of all, they have great flavor. (Cookie dough MUST have a little salt for best flavor!) They're moist, soft, chewy and tender, no doubt from the higher ratio of brown sugar to white. As the submitter suggested, I used half butter and half shortening, aiming to achieve the best properties of both. It doesn't surprise me this was "Grandma's" recipe. They always seemed to know how to do it right. My personal preference, however, is for a drier, crispier cookie but that is just my preference and not a criticism of this recipe. My five star rating, then, is for those whose preference is for a softer chocolate chip cookie. What's nice about this particular, softer cookie is that it doesn't rely on a lot of fat to make it so. I believe it's all about that extra amount of brown sugar as well as making sure they aren't overbaked.
