Rhonda Shelton's Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is per the request of my friend, Kathy...

Rhonda Shelton was in our married student ward when Jer and I were newlyweds. We have no idea where the Sheltons are anymore, but Rhonda's cookies are legend... This is honestly the only cookie recipe I actually crave. You'll know what I mean after you try them!

Rhonda Shelton's Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 + 1/3 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 1/2 cups flour
1 pkg. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Blend butter, shortening, and sugars till creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Add baking soda, salt, and flour all at once--you can add more flour if dough is too wet. Mix well, then add chocolate chips. 

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just barely golden brown. Do NOT overcook--these are better a little undercooked than overcooked. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for posting this recipe Karen! These cookies are amazing and I've wanted to try and make them since the YW party at your house! Cookies baking the oven sounds really good with the weather we're having - may have to make these this week! Thanks again!
