I liked the combination of shortening and butter as each makes its own contribution to the flavor and texture of a cookie. However, for my liking there was too much fat period, and the resulting cookies were greasier than I prefer, and not as thick. The flavor was good, and the cookie is not BAD, but I think reducing the total amount of shortening/butter by, say, 1/4 cup would be a vast improvement. As is, the cookie turns out much like the Nestle Toll House recipe on the back of the package, so if you're a fan of those, keep the recipe just as written.
