I was out of butter, but wanted to make some cookies and thought I would give this recipe a try. I'm really surprised that they turned out as well as they did. I love the chewy texture. They were incredibly simple to make. I didn't even use the mixture, just muscle. I'm not sure if my oven temp is off somehow, but I baked the first batch at 375 and the edges burned right away. I lowered the temp to 350 for the second batch and baked them for 12 mins and they came out perfect. I still prefer cookies made with butter. But, this will be my "go to" recipe when I'm out. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.

I chose this recipe because my husband was in bad need of choc chip cookies and I was out of butter, this recipe calls for shortening instead. They turned out better than I expected, but my oven seemed to over baked them a bit, I would say 8-10 mins worked best for me. I creamed the shortening and sugars first then added all the other ingredients, I also added walnuts. Husband was happy!

I've never made cookies where you mix everything all together in one bowl, so I did it my usual way.Using my Kitchen Aid I creamed the Crisco and sugar till fluffy,then added the eggs and vanilla, mixed that up and then added the flour and mixed up, then the choc. chips. I had miniature chips so only used 1 cup. I got 28 cookies using a 2" cookie scoop. They did spread quite a bit but they turned out delicious.I baked for 14 minutes. Turned out nice and crisp, just the way we like them. Thanks for your mom's recipe.
