  • 2 Cups Crisco
  • 1.5 Cups Brown Sugar
  • 1.5 Cups Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 5 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 bag Milk Chocolate Chips


  • Cream together the 2 cups Crisco, 1 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed) and 1 1/2 cup sugar. 
  • Once combined, add 4 eggs and 2 tsp vanilla and mix.
  • Add 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp baking soda and 2 cups flour to the above mixture and mix.
  • Then add the remaining 3 1/2 cups slowly until all the flour is incorporated. If needed you can add an additional 1/4 cup flour to reach a good cookie consistency.
  • Lastly, add the chocolate chips! My favorite are Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips!
  • Line a cookie pan with parchment paper and use a cookie scoop to line the pan in cookies!
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes. Just until the edges are golden brown.


The bake time totally varies depending on your altitude. So, on your first batch, watch closely. You want them still a little soft when you take them out, because they'll continue to finish cooking while they cook down on the pan!
