Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 c Butter Crisco
1 1/4 c Brown Sugar
2 T Milk
1 T Vanilla
1 Egg
1 3/4 c Flour
1 t Salt
3/4 t Baking soda
1 c Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 c Pecans, chopped

Heat oven to 375. Cream shortening, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in large bowl. Blend until creamy. Blend in egg. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture, gradually. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop rounded Tablespoonfuls (about 2 measuring tablespoons) of dough 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 8 to 10 minutes. For chewy cookies (they will look light and moist) DO NOT OVERBAKE or 11 to 13 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes. Remove to cooling rack. 3 dozen 3-inch cookies. Note: if nuts are omitted, use 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips.
These cookies are melt-in-your-mouth delicious!  They are our favorite cookie and the basic cookie dough can be used for all different kinds of  variations!
I also like to use walnuts - for my children I do not use any nuts at all - they love chocolate chip cookies - but they do not love nuts.  You can make a delicious cookie by substituting white chocolate chips and adding dried cranberries and pistachios or macadamia nuts - yum!

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
