It doesn’t get any more classic than freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Get together with your kids and try this delicious recipe.


1 cup 250 mL packed brown sugar
3/4 cup 175 mL Crisco® All Vegetable Golden Shortening
1 egg
2 tbsp 30 mL milk
1 tbsp 15 mL vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups 425 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
1 tsp 5 mL salt
3/4 tsp 4 mL baking soda
1 cup 250 mL semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Beat brown sugar and shortening together until light and creamy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; mix well. Add flour, salt and baking soda and mix until combined.
  3. Tip

    Do your kids know why you have to beat brown sugar and shortening together until it’s creamy? The sugar creates air bubbles with the shortening, which helps the cookie rise and turn out nice and tender.

  4. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets about 3 in (7 cm) apart.
  5. Tip

    Get a few different flavours of chocolate chips and let your kids mix together their favourites.

  6. Bake, one baking sheet at a time, in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes for chewy cookies, 11 to 13 minutes for crisp cookies. Be careful not to overbake. Let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet, then place on rack to cool completely.
  7. Tip

    Do your kids prefer chewy or crispy cookies? Bake one sheet for 8-10 minutes and the other for 11-13 and let them decide! This will help them understand baking times and what happens when you bake cookies for longer.
