  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Adjust the amount of chocolate chips to your liking, then stir them in by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop dough by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Clumps of dough should be about 3 inches apart.
  3. Bake for 7 minutes in the preheated oven, until brown around the edges. Let cool for 20 minutes. Eat and enjoy!

These turned out great. I used a cup of real butter instead of shortening and I didn't have enough semi-sweet chips so I used half semi-sweet and half milk chocolate chips. My brown sugar was really old but even with the added brown sugar "rocks", the cookies tasted great.

These cookies are fabulous. If you don't want to print out the recipe, just take it off the package of shortening.

These cookies were really quite tasty. I somehow didn't have any vanilla (I know, how does a person run out??) so I substituted about 1 T of peanut butter to give some sort of flavoring to the cookies. The end result was a very soft and puffy chocolate chip cookie with a very nice hint of peanut butter.

This is a really great recipe!! I changed a little bit of the recipe, I used butter instead of shortning and put a little bit more flour. I had to bake them a little bit longer than 7 min. They were super duper good! Best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had! :P

This is such a great recipe. I cook these once a week for my work and everyone loves these. When I cooked mine for 7 minutes like it said, it wasn't fully cooked, so I left it in there for a couple of more minutes and they came out wonderful.

Not the best I've made. There are better recipes out there.

first, i would like to give a warning: DO NOT cook on an insulated pan. it makes the cookies spread out, which causes them to run together, and also be too thin, so they end up crispy instead of soft. now then! i used butter instead of shortening, and half bread flour because i ran out of all purpose. still, they were delicious! even the crispy ones :)

I'm not too sure if it was becuase this was the first time I used this recipe but I found the dough to be runny and it tasted a little too salty...
