My Favourite C♥♥kies In the World

This is a recipe passed down from my paternal grandmother.  Her house is always full of a welcoming spirit and fantastic food.  These cookies are called "Gramma Cookies" at our house - her signature treat.

These cookies are great warm, cool, frozen, dunked in milk, nibbled with tea, sandwiched around vanilla ice cream, and even just the dough!  I know I never get as many out of a batch as I should, because I've eaten half of them raw.  

1/2 cup hard margarine (we have always used Imperial brand, but I don't know if it makes a difference)
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 - 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350*

Cream margarine and shortening.  Add white sugar, and then brown sugar, mixing until light and fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla extract.  Beat until smooth.
Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt until well blended.
Stir in chocolate chips {I use even a little less than 1 1/2 cups, because I LOVE the taste of the actual cookie part.}

Drop about 1 teaspoon onto greased cookie pan, and bake 6-8 minutes, or until puffy and a golden brown.

Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies.
