These cookies are so great! I used milk chocolate chips instead of the semi sweet but otherwise made as directed, well besides the fact that I *accidently* dumped in the whole bag of chips :) haha. They were so delicious...a little crunch on the outside and chewy on the inside. This one's a keeper!
MY OH MY !!! Very delicious cookies. I opted to use the pecans, and I made mine a little bigger. I ended up with 30. Nice , and chewy and soft. Made for Zaar Stars.
I made these this morning, as part of our Christmas cookies and they are wonderful!! I didn't have the butter flavored Crisco, so subbed 1/2 butter and the other half regular Crisco, in order to still have the butter flavor but also still have some of the texture the Crisco shortening provides. After first batch, I switched the temp. to 350 and added a little bit more flour, which isn't the recipes fault but mine for adding real butter. Thanks for sharing your great recipe!! Made for Sweet Traditions Tag Game!!
These were a big hit at my house - I took them to a Monday night football game and they vanished. I did use the optional pecans, which were finely chopped and used mini-chocolate chips, so there were little chips and pecan pieces in each bite.
Oh, YUM, YUM, YUM!!! Kat, these cookies are pure chocolate delight! So soft on the inside with a lovely crunchy crust. Wow, I am so glad I decided to make these as I think Ive found my new favourite choc chip cookie recipe! :) Truly easy and quick to make with outstanding results! I opted out of using the nuts as Im allergic and instead added a little more chocolate to the dough (but not 1/2 cup more as that would not have fitted into my cookies lol). Also I used butter in place of shortening as that was in my fridge and real ground vanilla bean in place of the extract. The results were really, really nice. I baked my BIG cookies for 12 minutes and that was perfect! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this gem of a recipe with us, partner! It will be made again and again!

Nice little treat. I added the pecans as suggested. Crisp on the outside and a bit chewy on the inside. Perfect. Made for Every Day Tag :)
i used whole weat flour which worked great, the cookies were wonderfully chewy! I did not use pecans but i used coffe flavored choclate chips which was great. I like dipping them into my late. What a great baby! Thank you for sharing, your "pick a chef spring 2008"
