Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
Forget that recipe on the back of the chip package — this is the best-ever recipe for Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies. With two kinds of chocolate, all three dozen cookies will be gone before you know it.
Preheat oven to 350° with rack in center position. Line baking sheets with parchment.
Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
Cream granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, shortening, eggs, and vanilla with a mixer on low speed, then increase speed to high and beat until fluffy and light in color.
Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture until no flour is visible; stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough using a #40 scoop (about 2 Tbsp.) onto prepared baking sheets, spaced 2-inches apart.
Bake cookies until lightly brown around the edges, 12–14 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheets 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Add a 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips with the semisweet chips for the perfect balance of bitter and sweet.
