Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies


There is not a better taste in this world than a  chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven.
  With a tall glass of cold milk...of course. 
  


I started making these cookies in high school. All - of - the - time. 
When Dakota was in pre-school she had to tell her teacher a "recipe" for a Mother's Day cookbook the class was making. She recited it almost word for word.  


These cookies are requested quite frequently by friends and family.
They are the one cookie that is always suppose to be in the cookie jar.



Everyone thinks they are special.  We just think they are cookies. They want the recipe! 
"What is the secret?"  they say. Well, it is just the recipe off the back of the 

Nestles Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chip bag...with one substitution.


Yep.  White Crisco instead of butter.  That's it.



Delicious.


 The cookie dough tastes pretty good too. 

 



Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 cup white Crisco
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/4 cups flour
2 cups Nestles Semi-sweet chocolate chips


Cream together the Crisco and sugars about 3 minutes.

Add the eggs and vanilla.

Mix again for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Add the salt and baking soda.

Mix about 1 minute.

Then stir the flour in by hand.

When thoroughly mixed add the chocolate chips.
Stir.

Scoop tablespoon size dough onto cookie sheet (we prefer AirBake).
Bake about 11 minutes in a 350 degree preheated oven.

Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack or paper towel on the counter.

Enjoy.
