We had company come stay with us this week, and so I thought some baking might be in order – if for no other reason than to demonstrate my domestic prowess. This is the BEST recipe for chocolate chip cookies that I have found. The cookies are moist and chewy.
Preheat oven to 350.
Blend Crisco and brown sugar until light and fluffy with an electric mixer. Add egg, milk and vanilla. Beat for 1 minute.
Add flour, salt and baking soda, and mix until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.
Roll 1 tbsp balls of dough. Place on greased cookie sheet leaving room for spread. Press down with your hand or a fork.
Bake for 8 minutes. Cookies will appear moist – do not overbake. Cool on pan, and then move to wire rack.
I have doubled this recipe, and kept dough in covered container in the fridge. Let the dough warm up a bit, and then roll into balls. Bake as many as required.
