Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know everyone has their own chocolate chip recipe they love so I thought I'd add my own. This was in my family's cookbook from the mid-1970's.

I use either butter flavored or plain shortening, whatever I have in the house.

Also, on frequent occasions, I add a bag of toffee chips just to change the taste up a bit.

Always a big hit when I take them to work!
