Gramma Cooney’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 ½ cups white shortening or lard
  • 2 ½ cups packed golden brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs (no shells please)
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ level teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 - 1 ½ cups small semi sweet chocolate chips

Cream the shortening and brown sugar together well, then add the milk, extract and eggs. Mix them together on medium until smooth. Add the flour, salt and baking soda and mix together. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.

Using nonstick, rimmed cookie sheets and drop the batter onto it by spoonfuls, about 12 – 14 per sheet. Bake one sheet at a time in a 325 oven for ten minutes or until done.

Oh, and one more thing, I accept no responsibility for the fact that your kids won’t let you out of the kitchen after making these just once!
