This recipe originated with my husband's paternal grandmother Laura Cayemberg nee Laurent. Her son, Patrick W. Cayemberg, began making them and they are a Cayemberg family favorite!
1 c. oleo (or imperial margarine)
1 c. Crisco shortening
1-1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
6 c. flour
2 tsp baking soda, in a little hot water
1 (12 oz) bag chocolate chips
Combine the baking soda in a little hot water and set aside.
Cream together the oleo/margarine and shortening. Add both sugars; mix well. Add the eggs, vanilla and salt. Mix well. Add the baking soda/water mixture and mix.
Add the flour, a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the chocolate chips.
Bake on cookie sheets at 375 degrees (F) for 11 minutes (9 minutes on the middle rack and 2 minutes on the top rack). Remove from oven and cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
