We think these are the best cookies ever.
There's nothing special about the ingredients.
Or the dough.
I'm not sure what makes them so good, but this is the only recipe I use!
My Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup crisco
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
2 TBSP milk
1 TBSP vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup nuts, chopped
In a large bowl, cream crisco, brown sugar, milk and vanilla. Add egg and mix well. Add dry white ingredients, combining well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts, if desired.
Scoop by large rounded tablespoon and bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes, depending on desired doneness.
Cool on rack or enjoy while warm and you can barely hold it in your hand and you need a bowl to plop it in because it's so warm and gooey that it won't even hold it's shape. Umm, that would be speaking from experience!
*I really think my "secret" to the cookies being so absolutely delicious is that I only bake them on a silpat lined cookie sheet and I definitely, absolutely, without a doubt do not over-bake them.
