Chocolate Chip Cookies

The chocolate chip cookie is a classic treat. Since we had guests tonight, I decided to bake some cookies as a simple gesture. The smell was incredible, I mean who doesn't love cookies. This is one of my mom's favorite old recipes, but we are not quite sure where it came from.

1 cup Crisco baking stick, butter flavored
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 bag  "milk chocolate" chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Blend the Crisco, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Then in a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture into the large bowl and mix together. Once mixed, add in the bag of chocolate chips. Spoon tablespoons of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet leaving two inches between cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cook and enjoy your tasty cookies!

As a twist on the classic cookie, add some ice cream to make an ice cream cookie sandwich or put them in a bowl for a chocolate fudge cookie sundae! However you eat them, these cookies are delicious.
