Heart-shaped chocolate chip cookies
Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies, especially when they are heart-shaped! Easy to make, and have a loving effect.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose FLour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter and shortening with sugars until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes; add vanilla. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Refrigerate mixture for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheet, to 1/2-inch thickness. Bake for 8 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and immediately cut into hearts with heart-shaped cookie cutter. Cool.
