These chocolate chip cookies work out perfectly, EVERY TIME! They don't spread or fall. You want a fail-proof recipe for the kids ya go!


1 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. warm water
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cup flour
1 cup nuts, chopped (for my husbands sake, I don't add these, but I love them better with them added...)
1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream shortening and sugars in bowl until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add baking soda, water, salt, and flour until moistened. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.

Spoon onto cookie sheet a spoonful at a time, I make small cookies - think kid size... (like a serving spoon size.) Bake for 8-10 minutes @ 350°. I made 4 dozen this morning with this recipe.
