The Girls’ Chocolate Chip Cookies

chocolate chip cookies

I call this “The girls’ recipe because it’s one that actually started with them, or one of their friends rather.  Then they just became the cookie makers in the family, which was fine by me!  With so many chocolate chip cookie recipes around, it’s hard to say what makes one better than another… As for me, I like this one the best because it was passed “up” to me for a change!  Grab a glass of milk and sit around the table for some talk with these cookies…you never know the stories you’re going to here with all these girls!
The Girls’ Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
3/4 cup butter-flavored Crisco
1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk, mini, YOU choose!)
1 cup nuts, chopped (optional)
Combine the Crisco, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in a mixing bowl; beat at medium speed until well blended. Add egg and beat until well blended.
In another bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda.  Mix into creamed mixture.  Stir the chocolate chips and nuts in.  Drop by tablespoons onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake 8- 10 minutes.  Cool 2 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
