Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Level: Easy to Bake

Yield: 3 Dozen Cookies


I've always had a problem with other chocolate chip cookie recipes turning out well. Maybe good one time, but not so good the next time. I have found with this recipe, they turn out fantastic every time!


Ingredients:


3/4 c. butter flavor Crisco®

1 1/4 c. firmly packed light brown sugar

2 T. milk

1 T. vanilla

1 egg

1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. salt

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 c. pecan pieces (optional)


Instructions:


Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine butter flavor Crisco®, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Beat egg into creamed mixture.


Combine flour, salt, and baking soda - and mix into creamed mixture until just blended.

Stir in chocolate chips and pecan pieces. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls (about 2 measuring tablespoons) of dough 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet.


Bake for 8 to 10 minutes for chewy cookies (cookies will appear moist, DON'T OVER BAKE!), or 11 to 13 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes, then place on foil on counter.


NOTE: If omitting nuts, add 1/2 cup more chocolate chips. 



Enjoy!
