Chocolate Chip cookies

I wanted to try my Grandmother's recipe for chocolate chip cookies.  The recipe calls for Crisco which makes a "crisper" chocolate chip cookie that has a bit of a snap to it when broken apart as compared to the soft baked kind. I tried both the "home baked" preset and the store bought preset.  For this particular recipe I thought the store bought preset worked best and I added 1.5' to the time.


  • *1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t vanilla


  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • **1/2 cup broken nuts

* I used butter flavored Crisco

** I roasted the walnuts

Cream shortening, sugars, egg, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Sift together dry ingredients then stir in creamed mixture; blend well. Add chocolate and nuts.  Drop by teaspoon 2" apart on june pan. Use store bought preset -- may need to add 2' time. Remove from oven promptly and use a spatula to place on cooling rack.
