Chocolate Chip Cookie

I got this reciepe from my '100 Best Cookies by Better Homes and Garden' magazine.  When I make Chocolate Chip Cookies, I usually stick to my mom's recipe but I decided to give these a try because the picture in the magazine looked delicious.  The flavor of the cookie was good because of the combination of butter and shortening but they didn't flatten out very much which I would have preferred.  Overall they were soft and chewy; here is the recipe below for you to try.
