These were a family favorite growing up...our mom is famous for them. I know everyone thinks their moms's cookies are the best but these really are the best! I remember my mom being asked for the recipe 4 different times in one day...they are so good.
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 pkg. milk chocolate chips
2 cups shortening (don't substitute with butter or they won't be puffy)
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla
5 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. salt
Mix sugar, shortening, and eggs. Add baking soda, water, vanilla, flour and salt. Add choc chips last. Bake on cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 8-10 min.
Once cookies have cooled, drizzle melted almond bark over top. (we use vanilla and milk chocolate almond bark)
