- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ⅛ cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 ¼ cups semisweet chocolate chips
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
step 2: In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Add beaten egg and vanilla, mix well. Sift flour, baking soda and salt together. Stir into creamed mixture; blend thoroughly. Fold in chocolate chips.
step 3: Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheets. Bake in oven for 6-9 minutes, depending on size. Do not overbake. Cookies should be a little brown around the edges when taken out.
