Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg

1 cup + 2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

chocolate chips
Skor bits (optional)
chopped pecans (optional)

Cream together shortening and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix well. Blend in dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips and, optionally, Skor bits and chopped pecans.

Drop by teaspoonsful onto parchment-lined baking sheets.

Bake at 350' for 8-12 minutes.


I usually double or quadruple the recipe while I have everything out. I often make some with just chocolate chips, then add in some Skor bits and finally some with pecans too. It will depend on the preferences of those who will be eating them.
