This is a recipe one of the girls at work gave me! They make the best cookies ever!
3/4c butter flavor crisco
1 1/4c brown sugar
1T vanilla (I use 1/2 vanilla, 1/2 almond extract)
1 3/4 c all purpose flour
3/4t baking soda
1c chocolate chips
I also added 1 cup of hershey's toffee and chocolate bits.
1. Heat oven to 375* F.
2. Combine crisco, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed until well blended. Beat egg into creamed mixture.
3. Add flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix into creamed mixture just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Drop tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes for chewy cookies or 11-13 minutes for crisper cookies.
5 Allow to cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet then roomove and cool.
Yield 3 dozen cookies.
