Betty's Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by MsBindy

When I was in high school, I cleaned Betty's house to earn extra money. Betty made these awesome cookies that are still my favorite all these years later. The original recipe called for a brand of shortening called Fluffo. I don't think that brand is made any more, but using the butter-flavored Crisco provides a good substitute.

I found this recipe because I was out of butter but needed to make chocolate chip cookies. I the only change I made was by using chocolate chunks instead. These are so good I don't think I will ever make them any other way again. Thanks for sharing Ms*Bindy.
