Here's a good, easy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe I found in the books. "Easy" being the keyword for this bachelor.
3/4 cup Butter Flavored Shortening
1 1/4 cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Milk
1 Tablespoon Real Vanilla
1 3/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
3/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Pecan Pieces (or your favorite nuts)
Heat oven to 375. Combine shortening, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed until well blended. Beat in egg. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix into creamed mixture just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop dough by teaspoonful, 3 inches apart onto cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes for chewy cookies or 11-13 minutes for crisp cookies. DO NOT OVER BAKE. Remove cookies to cooling rack. Makes about 3 dozen.
Enjoy a glass of cold milk and a good movie!
