    If we don't have vegetable shortening then can we replace it with butter, or just leave it out without replacing anything?

    I would like to use this recipe but in a mini size.
    How long do I leave the cookies in the oven?
    Do I leave them there for the same time as in the original recipe?
    Please help!

    could I use baking powder instead off the baking soda?

    Is the Vegetable Shortening optional or it has to be in the recipe?

    can you use butter flavored shortening as a substitute for vegetable shortening?

    Ingredients:
    2 ¼ cups All Purpose Flour
    1 tsp Salt
    1 tsp Baking Soda
    1/8 tsp Ground Cinnamon
    2 Eggs
    1 tsp Vanilla Extract
    3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp of Unsalted Room Temperature Butter
    2 tbsp Vegetable Shortening at Room Temperature
    ¾ cup of Granulated Sugar
    ¾ of a Cup of Brown Sugar
    2 cups Semisweet Chocolate Chips     Process,        1) Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

    2) Combine together the first 4 ingredients and set aside.

    3) In a mixer bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter, shortening, and both sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix together until all creamy and combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to make sure everything is mixed well.

    4) Add the dry ingredients and mix just to combine. Add the chocolate chips and mix just to distribute them through the batter.

    5) Using a small ice cream scoop, drop the cookie dough 2 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly golden brown around the edges.

    6) Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet then remove onto wire rack and cool completely.

    These are not your typical doughy and dense cookies. These are light, crisp yet soft, chewy and incredibly chocolaty. The cinnamon is not strong enough to detect right away it just makes the chocolate more intense. I promise that once you make these cookies, you will never stop making them because they are seriously addicting. Enjoy!Recipe By: Laura Vitale

    I made a few changes and they turned out perfect. First of all, I halved the recipe (I only wanted 2 dozen) and I put one more tablespoon of butter and cut out two tablespoons of the flower. I also slightly flattened the cookies when I scooped the dough onto the pan. They turned out to be soft in the middle, crisp around the edges, and thin. I hope this helped 🙂

    Hi Laura I just baked these cookies ! no alteration exact same recipe – they taste ah-mazingggg !!! incredibly soft chewy chocolatey and everything you claimed them to be Laura
    the batter was really wet and gooey and they spread out quite well on the baking sheet ! I can't keep my hands off them ! thanks for the recipe! I've watched almost every episode of yours and I love each one of them!
    I think I'm gonna warm these cookies up and serve them with ice cream and choc sauce for today's dessert after dinner ?
