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 need to remember to post a photo!

This recipe makes a lot of cookies so quite often, I bake a dozen or so for us and then freeze the rest.  I scoop cookies individually onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and then place them in the deep freeze to freeze an hour or two.  (Set a timer so you do not forget them!). 

Then they can be tossed into Ziploc freezer bags and taken out when you want to bake them by placing on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and placed in the preheated oven per instructions.  Add a minute or two to baking time.

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).
