Recipe - Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is the recipe for the cookies I made for Father's Day. Until recently I have sworn that Nestle Toll House's recipe for chocolate chip cookies is the best. Several months ago though, I tried a recipe from my friend Jenn and changed my mind. I love these cookies. The are easy to prepare and only dirty one bowl. They bake up perfectly, taste delicious and I can eat far too many of them.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 cups flour
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix all together. Spoon into balls on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes.
