  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 (12 oz) package semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup milk chocolate morsels
  • 3 (1 oz) squares chopped bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup almond brickle chips


Preheat oven to 375 °F. Lightly grease baking sheets.

With an electric mixer, beat butter and shortening at medium speed until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating well.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in chocolate morsels and almond brickle chips. Drop cookies by 1/4 cupfuls about 3-inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 11 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks to cool.
