Chocolate Chip Cookie

I love to cook. My family has grown quite used to being experimented upon. Although there are quite a few recipes that will never be tried again, there are some that are family favourites. This is one of them!

1 cup shortening (I use a stick of butter flavoured Crisco)
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 1/4 cups flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Cream together shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla until creamy
Add flour, salt and baking soda
Stir in chopped nuts and chocolate chips
Using a cookie scoop, drop on ungreased cookie sheet
Bake at 350deg. for approximately 10 minutes - remove from oven when they start to brown
