National Chocolate Chip Day

So I feel a little cheated that I never knew there was such a thing as National Chocolate Chip Day.  SERIOUSLY?  This is one of my new favorite days!  So, Alexa and I celebrated by making our favorite - Chocolate Chip Cookies (with some M&M's thrown in for good measure).

I've tried a lot of Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes over the years but the recipe from Crisco is our favorite.  Oh and this recipe is for a single batch but I almost always double it (and would recommend you do the same).


3/4 cup Crisco Butter Flavor Shortening
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
2 T milk
1 T vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1 t salt
3/4 t baking soda
1-1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine Crisco, brown sugar, milk and vanilla.  Beat egg into mixture.  Combine dry ingredients and mix into creamed mixture just until blended.  Stir in chocolate chips (and M&M's if you like).

Drop by large tablespoons onto un-greased cookie sheet.  Bake 9 minutes for chewy cookies (that's how we like them) or up to 11 or 12 minutes for crispy cookies.  Cool on a cookie sheet for a couple of minutes then remove to cool.

ENJOY!!  Alexa sure did.
