Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I used to make these cookies for school bake sales in England. I always got lots of compliments on these cookies and my family loves them. The butter and shortening  mixture makes the texture chewy and perfect.

Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1 c packed brown sugar
1 c granulated sugar
1/2 c butter
1/2 c shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 1/2 c flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 bar white chocolate, chopped
1 bar milk chocolate, chopped
1 bar dark chocolate, chopped
Heat oven to 350 F. Beat sugars, butter, vanilla and egg in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon until creamy. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in all chocolate chunks. Drop dough in rounded tablespoons about 2" apart onto ungreased large cookie sheet; flatten slightly. Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

I LOVE a good cookie and those look WAY good. Those would be good gifts cause they're so pretty and -I'm sure- taste so good.

My oven tends to be hot and so I do 10-12 minutes. If you have a colder or more true temperature in your oven do 12-14 minutes.
