3/4 c Golden crisco shortening
1 1/4 c Lightly-packed brown sugar
2 tb Milk
2 ts Vanilla
1 1/2 c All-purpose flour
1 ts Salt
3/4 ts Baking soda
1 c Semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c Coarsely chopped pecans
1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C).
2. Cream Golden Crisco Shortening and brown sugar in large
bowl at medium speed of electric mixer for 2 minutes or until light. 3. Add egg, milk and vanilla, beating 1 minute, or until
thoroughly blended. 4. Combine flour, salt and baking soda. Add to creamed
mixture gradually, beating on low speed 1 minute, or just until blended. 5. Stir in semi-sweet chocolate chips and pecans.
6. Drop dough by heaping spoonfuls (2 tsp./ 30 mL) on
ungreased baking sheet leaving about 7 cm (3 inches) between cookies. 7. Bake at 375F (190C) for 8 to 10 minutes. Cookies will
appear moist when baked. Cool 2 minutes, then remove to cooling rack. If desired, omit pecans and use additional 1/2 cup (125 mL) of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
