Ingredients

3/4 c
crisco all-vegetable shortening
1 1/4 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
2 Tbsp
milk
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract
1
large egg
1 3/4 c
all purpose flour

salt
3/4 tsp

1 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat shortening and brown sugar in large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. (When I made this I just mixed with a sturdy plastic spoon).
2
Beat in milk, vanilla and egg. Stir in flour, salt and baking soda.
3
Mix in chocolate chips and nuts. (TIP- If nuts are omitted, add an additional 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips). Drop by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
4
Bake 8-10 minutes for chewy cookies or 11-13 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet. Transfer cookies to cooling rack.
