Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is the best, no the ULTIMATE, chocolate chip cookie recipe! I made these yesterday so Dan could have an after work treat when he got home. I've been using it for about 4 years now. I do break one rule I have when making these, Crisco. I'm normally a butter girl but that's what the recipe calls for and if it isn't broke, I don't try to fix it.

3/4 c Butter flavored Crisco
1 1/4 c Firmly packed brown sugar
2 tb Milk
1 T Vanilla
1 Egg
1 3/4 c All-purpose flour
1 tsp Salt
3/4 tsp Baking soda
1 c Semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use the whole bag and I use milk chocolate chips)
1 c Pecan pieces (I've never put these in)

Heat oven to 375. Cream butter flavor Crisco, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in large bowl. Blend until creamy. Blend in egg. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture, gradually. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop rounded Tablespoonfuls (about 2 measuring tablespoons) of dough 3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 8 to 10 minutes for chewy cookies (they will look light and moist with bottoms looking done) DO NOT OVERBAKE or 11 to 13 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool on baking sheet 2 minutes before moving to cooling rack.

I have not used another recipe since Laura shared this one with me. These are delicious. I don't know if it's the milk or the large amount of vanilla or what - but they are our perfect choc chip cookie!!!

Oh, and that's not my picture.

Isn't it funny how cookie recipes can be so different? I just compared this to the ones I usually make, and I expected them to be relatively the same... but they weren't! Granted, mine are oatmeal-chocolate chip, but still. Weird.
I'll have to try these soon!

After Laura posted this recipe, I could resist! Besides chocolate chips were on sale at the store anyway. Delicious!

I am going to make these and credit you on my blog. My sister and I have been looking for a good chocolate chip cookie recipe because none of the ones we have tried ever end up how we want them too.

I'll give it a go!

UM, I love these and I will never ever use a different recipe.
They are perfection.
I will recommend them without reservation and with conviction.

Love them!
