Chocolate Chunk Chewy Cookie

 These cookies are soooooooooooooo good.  I made these for my grandson, he loves chocolate chip type cookies.  These could be a great addition to your cookie recipe stash.  They are simple to make and the dough freezes well too.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup real butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs
1 (12 ounce) packages semi-sweet chocolate chips or you can use large hersey bars chopped in large pieces
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat butter and shortening until creamy.
Add sugar and vanilla and beat with a mixer on medium speed until well blended.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, mixing well.
Add flour mixture, and beat slowly to incorporate, then beat to blend well.
Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Refrigerate for about 1 hour.
Drop batter in 2-tablespoon portions ( or use a small ice cream scoop) about 2 inches apart on baking sheets.
Bake in a 375°F preheated oven until edges of cookies are brown but an area about 1 inch wide in the center is still pale, about 10 minutes.
If using 2 pans in 1 oven, switch positions at half-time.
Let cookies cool on pan about 5 minutes, then transfer to racks with a spatula.
Serve warm or cool.
For freezing, scoop the dough onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.  Place in freezer until frozen.  Remove from cookie sheet and place in large plastic bag, write the temp time and cookie time on outside of bag, along with the date you put them in the freezer.  You can take them out and cook a dozen at a time.  Great way to have cookies on hand.

 Thanks for taking time from you busy day to stop by.  Have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the Time to Do ALL the things YOU love.
