The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies
By Salena Thomas
1/2 c brown sugar
1 c butter flavored Crisco
12 - 24 oz chips of choice
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/4 c flour
1 c chopped nuts of choice (opt)
Cream Crisco and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and flavoring. Add dry ingredients and blend thoroughly. Mix in chips and nuts. Shape into walnut shaped balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with palm of hand. Bake at 350 for 9 - 10 minutes or until slightly golden. Let stand on cookie sheets for several minutes before removing to cooling rack. Makes 3 dozen.
To make extra special dip half the cookie into melted chip of flavor. I dipped these in melted peanut butter chips and drizzled melted chocolate over the top.
