Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever eaten. My mom originally got this from Pillsbury and it's the only recipe she's used since we were kids. Here are two tips to make sure they are perfect: 1) use bread flour instead of all-purpose and 2) cool these on foil instead of the cookie sheet.

The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

3/4 cup butter flavor Crisco
1-1/4 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 egg
1-3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans (optional)*

How to Make It:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Combine Crisco, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Beat egg into creamed mixture.
3. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix into creamed mixture just until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
4. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake one sheet at a time at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes for chewy or 11-13 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool on sheet for 2 minutes then transfer to foil.

*If nuts are omitted add an additional 1/2 cups of chocolate chips.
