Chocolate Chip Cookies!

There is nothing so deliciously basic as a chocolate chip cookie. Yet I've found that most chocolate chip cookie recipes are anything but fool proof. I've also found that the chocolate chip recipe that works at one house may not work so well at another. Could it be a difference in ovens? A few years ago we moved several blocks south and had to find a new cookie recipe. I don't think it was a climate change that made the difference.

So here's the cookie recipe that works for us now.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Cream margarine, shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well and add dry ingredients. Mix in chips and nuts. Drop by spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for ten minutes.
