    • Substitute Option (1): 1 lb high-quality margarine
    • Substitute Option (2): 1 lb butter
    • Substitute Option (3): 1/2 lb butter 1/2 lb Crisco
  • 1 cup white or raw sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1.5 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 5 cups Unbleached Flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of hot water
  • ½ to ¾ bag of semisweet chocolate chips


Bowl 1

[Tip: Leave butter/crisco or margarine at room temp for about an hour before starting]

Add the following to Bowl 1

  • 1 cup crisco
  • 1 cup white or raw sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar

Beat until smooth.

Heat 1 teaspoon of water (in microwave oven, blast for 20 seconds or so)

Add 2 teaspoons Baking Soda to heated water to activate the Baking Soda

Add the activated Baking Soda to Bowl 1

Add 2 or 3 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract (to taste) to Bowl 1

Beat mixture in Bowl 1 until smooth (5 to 10 minute should do it) unless using a high-end mixer such as the Kitchen Aide; in that case, time may be less.

Add 4 eggs and continue mixing until eggs are mixed in.

Bowl 2 (Use Large Bowl)

Add 5 cups of unbleached flour to bowl 2

Add 1.5 teaspoons of Salt to bowl 2

Add 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder to bowl 2


Combine the 2 Bowls

Add contents of Bowl 2 to Bowl 1, one cup at a time while mixing bowl 1 contents.

Repeat until all of Bowl 2 has been added to Bowl 1.

Add semisweet chocolate chips in whatever concentration you prefer, or any other treat you like.

Usually 1 or 2 cups is fine.

Cooking Directions

Pile cookie dough onto a flat cookie sheet--about 1  teaspoon per "clump".

Bake at 350 degrees (F) for up to 18 minutes--larger cookies may require longer cooking time.
