Mint and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 stick butter, softened
4 ounces butter flavored crisco
3 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups flour
1 bag mint and dark chocolate chips

Make It:
Preheat oven to 350. In a mixing bowl beat together sugar, butter, shortening, and brown sugar until creamy. Add in eggs one at a time, mixing each one in before adding the next. In a separate bowl sift together flour, salt, and baking soda. With mixer on low, slowly pour in flour mixture, a little at a time. Once all flour is poured in, mix until completely combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Drop tablespoons of dough( I use a melon baller)onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet, then move cookies to a rack and allow to cool completely. Enjoy!
