Sourdough Chocolate Chip Cookies
***On consideration, these cookies could have used more chocolate chips. So throw in 1 and 1/2 bags if you are making a half-batch like I did.
Sourdough Chocolate Chip Cookies (Recipe makes 70 cookies, cut in half for smaller batches)
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour -- unsifted
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter -- softened
1 cup shortening -- softened
1 1/2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sourdough starter
