The Chips Ahoy! Cookie Recipe...A copycat that's Great!

Home Made Chips Ahoy, anyone!
Chips Ahoy! debuted in 1963, and has been a favorite of many a cookie lover since that day, but times are tough, and you may be sitting at home right now thinking "I would really like some Chips Ahoy! Cookies", but being the part of the 99%, you just can't afford them. Not to fear, you may have just what it takes, in your home right now, to enjoy this homemade version of that exact Chips Ahoy! recipe.
Why not get into the kitchen, start baking, and at least you can feel like the 1%. After making these you will wonder why you haven't done this all of your life.
Let's start.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup vegetable shortening (Crisco)
3/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg white
1 tablespoons warm water (if needed)
6 ounces semisweet mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
Use an electric mixer to mix the two sugars and shortening. When creamy add the vanilla, salt, and egg white.
Add the flour 1/2 cup at a time adding a tablespoon of warm water as necessary to mix the flour. Note: don't exceed 2 tablespoons of water, this will make a firm dough.
Mix in chocolate chips. Roll into 2-inch balls and press down to make flat. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 36 good size cookies.
When they are done you will have a hard time believing that you have just created these. This may have just become my "go to" chocolate chip cookie from now on.
