Really, really good cookies :D

Hey Y'all! Skyril wanted my mum's recipe for awesome chocolate cookies, so here it is. This is in US measures, btw

Bafesda bars (no joke, its what they're called)

2 1/4 C. all purpose flour
1/2 C. white sugar
1 C. packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 C. butter flavored Crisco
2 eggs
2 C. chocolate chips (about 2 handfuls)

1) Preheat the oven to 375 F
2) In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking power, and salt. Set the bowl aside for later
3) In another, larger bowl, beat the Crisco, both kinds of sugar, and the vanilla together until it's a uniform color and fluffy (if you have a stand mixer it makes it a lot easier)
4) Add the eggs and mix in well
5) Gradually add the flour mixture and mix till there are no dry patches
6) Fold in the chocolate chips and mix everything till its is all even and looks good
7) Grease a 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1 cookie sheet (make sure it has sides on it) and pat the dough into the pan, making sure that it's all even
8) Put the pan in the preheated oven and set a timer for 20 to 25 minutes. Bake until the cookies are golden brown and look ready. Use your good judgment ;)
9) Let the cookies cool for a little bit before cutting into squares (as big as you want!)

These taste awesome over vanilla ice-cream!
