mom's chocolate chip cookies

While I insist on following Grandma's recipe to a "T" -- Mom substitutes butter for the shortening in her version.


Sometimes her impatience for a hot cookie gets the best of her and she'll bake the first batch before chilling the dough.


The cookies always end up spreading too much but secretly, I think that's intentional. After all, you can't share a cookie that doesn't look just right!
