My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe

Stephanie asked me to type this out for her so I thought I'd go ahead and put it here, too.  These cookies are delicious.  They filled many a cookie jar in our home.

I will post a picture the next time I make them.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 stick butter - soft
1 stick Crisco
2 1/2 C. brown sugar
4 T. milk
1 T. vanilla
2 eggs
3 1/2 C. flour
1 t. salt
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 pkg. milk chocolate chips or mini choc. chips or 1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Cream butter, Crisco, milk, and sugar.  Add eggs and then vanilla.

Combine flour, salt, soda.  Add to cream mixture just until mixed.

Add chocolate chips (and nuts if you are using them).

Drop onto baking sheet.  Bake 8 or 9 minutes.  Let cool about 5 minutes.  Transfer to cooling rack or let cool on paper bag.
