Serves: 36 | Prep Time: 5 min | Cook Time: 12-15 min



  • 3/4 cup (145g) shortening
  • 1/3 cup (68g) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (170g) corn syrup
  • 3/4 tsp (4.5g) salt
  • 1 tsp (4.2g) vanilla
  • 1 tsp (4g) baking soda
  • 4 cups  Better Batter Flour (choose one):
    • 480g Cake Flour OR
    • 400 g Original OR
    • 400 g Artisan
  • 1/3 - 1 cups (60 -180g) mini chocolate chips
  • 4 Tbsp (86ml) regular or DF milk
  • 2 eggs or 1/2 c (120ml)  aquafaba


Preheat and Prepare. Heat your oven to 325F. Line several baking sheets with parchment paper.

Mix Ingredients. In the bowl of your mixer, combine the shortening, sugar and corn syrup and beat until light and fluffy.

Mix. Add the salt, vanilla, and baking soda, and blend again. Add the Better Batter flour and blend until evenly combined. The mixture will be crumbly!

Stir in the chocolate chips and gently mix until evenly combined. Add the milk and blend until a soft dough forms. If desired (for softer baked cookies) add the aquafaba and blend again.

Scoop by 1 tbsp (16g) scoops onto prepared cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with the bottom of a cup – cookies will remain in the shape you make them, so make them approximately as thick and big as you prefer.

Bake and cool for about 12-15 minutes, then remove from oven. Slide the parchment paper onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely before removing to an airtight container for storage.
