DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350. Make sure your rack is in the middle.
  • Cream together the Crisco, white and brown sugar, salt, baking soda, vanilla, and milk. A wooden spoon works best! You want to make sure the sugar is dissolved.
  • Add the egg, and stir until creamy.
  • Add in the flour, the whole bag of chocolate chips, oats and nuts (the last two are if desired--my husband says no oats but I always put them in anyway).
  • Stir until combined and there's no flour at the bottom of the bowl.
  • Using a teaspoon, scoop a heaping spoonful onto a cookie sheet. We like to make them tiny, four across by six down. You should get two full trays like this, unless someone comes in and eats the dough while it's in the fridge.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes--I set the timer for 8 and check. The second batch always bakes faster than the first. You want them to be golden brown, and if you like them crispy, leave them in for longer!
  • When they're done, I like to put them on paper towels to cool. Then enjoy!
