Recipe for Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies. What more can be said, this recipe is a classic hat everyone loves.


  • 3/4 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans (optional -- if nuts are omitted, add an additional 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips)


  1. Cream butter flavored shortening, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in large bowl. Beat with mixer at medium speed until well blended. Beat egg into Creamed mixture.
  2. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix into Creamed mixture just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and pecan pieces.
