Soft and Light Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 cups milk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Blend the shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk to the shortening mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets. (Can also be made in a lightly greased 9x13 inch pan and cut into bars when cooled.)
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until barely light brown at the edges.
