chocolate chunk cookies


  • ½ cup vegetable shortening
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened ( do not heat to soften- leave at room temperature till spreadable)
  •  ¾ cup soft brown sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups plain, refined wheat flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup milk chocolate cut into small chunks (use your favorite – we used  DOVE® Milk Chocolate )
  • ½ cup dark chocolate cut into small chunks (use your favorite – we used  DOVE® Dark Chocolate )


  • Preheat oven to 163 º c /325 º F.
  • Add the shortening, butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract to a bowl. Cream together using an electric beater / mixer.  Mix till smooth.
  • Then mix in the milk.
  • In a separate bowl add the flour, salt and baking soda and mix well with a whisk or fork.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold in with a spatula till mixed well into a thick dough. (There should be no more dry flour visible).
  • Add the chocolate chunks last and quickly fold in till evenly distributed. Do not over mix and cause the chunks to melt.
  • Line your baking tray with parchment/ baking paper.
  • Scoop up generous tablespoons of the dough. Use hands to roll into tight balls quickly.
  • Place the balls on the baking paper, evenly spaced. Allow room for spreading while baking.
  • Now pat each ball down into thick disks of equal diameter.
  • Bake for 20 – 25 minutes (until the cookies are light brown and crispy).
  • Bake in batches if needed.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely and store in airtight jars.
  • Hope you love ’em as much as we did!
