Chocolate Chip Cookies / Pizzookies!!!

I spent years trying to find a Chocolate Chip cookie recipe that worked here in the Wyoming desert:) Finally one of friends posted a recipe on their blog (click here) and I fell in love with it!!

Now I have also found another go-to site for complete yumminess Our Best Bites they are  coming our their first cookbook this Spring and I love all their recipes I've tried! Well, I combined my friends cookie recipe and best bites ingenious Pizzookie Cookie idea and now a trip to heaven is available in 20 minutes!! Perfect for a late night snack (after the kids are in bed), a quick afternoon pick me up (when the kids are napping)- seeing a trend here?? :)

Chocolate Chip Cookies 
(can be halved)
The melt in your mouth kind!

3 cups shortening 
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups brown sugar
3 tsp. vanilla
6 eggs
3 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking soda
7 1/2 cups flour
2 pkgs. chocolate chips

Cream shortening, sugars, vanilla and eggs. Add salt and baking soda. Gradually add flour. Beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. 
Now here is where you have a choice- you can drop these puppies onto a cookie sheet and bake for 8- 10 minutes at 375 degrees or....

You can get out some ramekins (I use 6 oz Pyrex ones I bought at Smiths), put a decent size scoop of dough in it and bake it for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees until it reaches you desired amount of doneness. Let cook for 5 minutes, scoop a good size scoop of ice cream on top and sail off to heaven! 
Seriously, you have try it to experience the bliss!!

Now I don't have a picture yet (I just have to jump in and take that first bite) so...

tonight I will make one just so I can take a picture for you.

(Do you hear the self sacrificing that is going into this? )

Just for you:)

Oh, and the best part is you can freeze the rest of the dough for later use!
