1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar|
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsps salt
1 1/2 tsps baking soda
1 cup butter
1 cup shortening
6 1/2 cups sifted cake flour
24 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream together sugars, salt, baking soda, butter and shortening: beat well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Add flour, mixing well after each cup. Add chocolate chips.
Drop the dough using a small ice cream scoop onto pans lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 360° for 10-12 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on pans before removing to a cooling rack. Yields 7 dozen.
Meg's variations: Sometimes I cut down on the flour and substitute dry whole oats. Also try cutting down on the chocolate chips and adding pecans or walnuts!
