Mmmmm... if there's one thing I can master... it would be chocolate chip cookies. Without a doubt, these are the best. I am always being asked about the recipe so here it is.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • OR 3/4 cup Crisco Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 3/4 cups Pillsbury All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 (6 oz.) package semi-sweet chocolate chips (1 cup)


  1. HEAT oven to 375ºF.

  2. COMBINE shortening, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Beat in egg. Combine flour, salt and baking soda. Mix into shortening mixture until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

    Well, what do you think? Will you try them? If you do, could you come back and let us know how you like them? Perhaps you change it up a bit and make a different variation of them... I would love hear what you tried and (or) omitted.
