Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 stick butter - must be real butter!

1/2 cup shortening

2 eggs

3/4 c white sugar

3/4 c brown sugar

1 tblsp vanilla

1 tsp bkg powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 to 2 cups chopped walnuts (if desired)

Thoroughly mix on high till smooth and light. Slowly add 2 and 1/2 cups flour. Mix well and add 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts if desired.

Now comes the secret to perfect cookies. Make walnut sized balls of the dough, it will be a soft dough, and place on a plate or pie pan and freeze for about half an hour before baking. This will ensure that your cookies are uniform and bake perfectly!!

Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

When they are light golden they are done.
