Chips Ahoy



  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 level teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 level teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable shortening (Crisco)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons warm water
  • 12 ounces mini semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Bring all ingredients to room temperature. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Use an electric mixer to mix the two sugars and shortening. When creamy add the vanilla extract, salt and egg white. Add the flour 1/2 cup at a time, adding a tablespoon of warm water as necessary to mix the flour - don't exceed 4 tablespoons of water - this will make a firm dough. Mix in chocolate chips. As the dough gets thicker you may want to mix by hand. Roll into 2-inch balls and press down with the palm of the hand to flatten.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
