It's been so hot lately that I've hardly turned on the oven. Today it's cool and sprinkling...just perfect for baking cookies.
This is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and it's Bobby's favorite cookie of all time. He loves when I make them. He'll be thrilled to find them when he comes home from school today.
I made these cookies one time for the judges at a band contest that our school was hosting. One of the other moms tried one and said "We'll put those ol' store bought cookies out for the judges and keep these back for the parents." She went on and on about how good they tasted and of course that just made my day. :)
This is a recipe from Crisco that I tweaked a bit.
1) Heat oven to 375 degrees.
2)Combine the following and beat at medium speed until well blended:
3/4 cup (3/4 stick) butter flavor Crisco Shortening
1 - 1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
3)Beat one egg into creamed mixture
1 - 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
Mix into creamed mixture just until blended.
Stir in 1 cup milk chocolate chips and 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans.
4) Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
I hope your family enjoys them as much as we have.
