Madi's Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Displaying 20151006_171147-1.jpgOur kids love to help in the kitchen, especially when it's time to bake cookies.  Madi memorized my friend's cookie dough recipe and has slowly made changes. This is her version.

1 1/2 sticks butter (3./4 cup) softened
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted, but not hot*  
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
4 cups flour
3 cups chocolate chips

Mix softened butter and coconut oil until blended.  Add sugars, mix well. Blend in eggs, then vanilla salt and baking soda.

Fold in flour until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoonfuls on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 5 minutes on the top rack and 5 additional minutes on the bottom rack.

Cool slightly before removing to cooling racks.

*Tip: When using coconut oil, it's best to let all ingredients come to room temperature first. If using cold ingredients, mix while adding oil slowly, the batter may thicken as the coconut oil hardens.
