{ Chocolate Chip & Heath Cookies }

Most of my friends know that these are my favorite go-to cookies. My aunt passed me this recipes and I have made it too many times to admit! My husband even knows this recipe and makes these cookies for himself sometimes. Here is a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe with heath pieces. The perfect balance between sweet and salty! (WARNING: These are NOT healthy or vegan and they are addicting!)

{ ingredients }

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening 
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 3 3/4 cup Flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 12 oz package of semi-sweet (or dark) chocolate chunks (You could replace with cacao or carob chips)
  • 1 cup Milk chocolate chips  
  • 1 cup almond brickle chips (Sometimes I add a bit more than a cup)

{ directions }

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Cream together butter and shortening and gradually add sugars and beat til fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla an mix well.
  4. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Gradually add to butter mixture and beat til blended.
  5. Stir in chocolate and heath. 
  6. Drop by heaping tablespoon on lightly greased cookie sheets and bake 11-12 minutes until very lightly golden brown. (The secret is slightly undercooking- removing from oven just when they start turning light golden. For my oven, I remove them at around 10 minutes.)
  7. Remove from oven. Keep on cookie sheets 2-3 minutes and transfer to wire racks to cool.
  8. Enjoy! Yum!

Makes about 48 cookies, but beware, these disappear quickly!
