Emma's Famous Chocolate Chip cookies

I made these for the primary the other day and they were a hit! So Yummy and gooey!

2/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 c flour (plus 1/2 c for softer rounder cookies) I did not add the extra flour when I last made them.
12 oz chocolate chips (I probably put in more than that!)
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
Can put in 1 c nuts but I didn't

Preheat oven 375. Mix together shortning, butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients ( I put everything in my mixer) Cook 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool before removing from cookie sheet. They taste better under done---I took them out of the oven a little before they started turning too brown and they finished cooking on the sheet. They are so yummy!! Enjoy!
