Ingredients:  
c. (1 stick) butter
c. shortening
c. cream cheese
c. granulated sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 c. flour

Directions:
Allow butter, cream cheese, and eggs to come to room temperature.

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In the bowl of your mixer, cream butter, cream cheese, brown and white sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture and beat on low until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate dough for 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scoop dough by tablespoons (or use a 2 in. cookie scoop), roll into a ball and put on cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool for a minute or two before transferring to wire rack. It's easiest to just slide parchment and all right onto the rack.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe makes soft and chewy cookies. If you like yours thin and crisp just increase the butter to 2 1/2 sticks (1 1/4 c.), decrease the brown sugar to 3/4 c., and increase the granulated sugar to 1 1/4 c. The rest of the recipe remains the same.

You can press a few mini chips or one regular chip or chunk into the top of the cookie before baking to make them eye-pleasing special. You can also add 1 c. of chopped pecans for variety.
You can substitute 1/2 c. of the flour with an equal amount of rolled oats, and substitute 1 c. of raisins for 1 c. of the chips.
