In the kitchen: chocolate chip deliciousness.

For J's birthday, he said he didn't want me to bake or cook him anything (dishes and a messy kitchen stress him out mucho), so we went out for some mexican and Coldstone instead.
But since I had the day off on Thursday, I still wanted to bake him something. So, I opted for some ohsofreakinggood chocolate chip cookies. 

This recipe is ah.mazing. Amazing. 
A co-worker of mine last year gave it to me on my last day, and it will most definitely be a staple in my recipe box forever!
As you can see, it makes a boatload of cookies... 

...which we have no problem consuming in this house. nomnomnomnom.

this may or may not have been filled to the brim only 3 days ago!
So from my kitchen (or, really my co-worker's!) to your's...

Chocolate Chip Deliciousnes.

1c. Blue Bonnet or Imperial* Margarine (soft)
1c. butter flavored* Crisco shortening
-Mix together with a wooden spoon*.

1 1/2c. white cane* sugar
1 1/2c. light brown sugar
2 large eggs
-Mix with butter mixture.

In a separate bowl: 
4 3/4c. flour
2t. baking soda
1t. salt

-Mix all together with your hands* and add chocolate chips. (12-16oz. I use both semi-sweet and milk chocolate)
-Bake at 350 for 8-9 min. The cookies will look like they are not done, but take them out, let them cool and they will be perfection. The only thing you can do wrong is over cook!

**I know the brand/mixing specifications seem weird. But these cookies are AWESOME, so stick with what works! :D**

I was looking for a cookie recipe to make today while we were out of work/school (first snow day of the year)....and then I saw this. I made them, but added walnuts to the recipe (and used real butter, don't have margarine). They really are delicious. Thanks for posting the recipe.
