Preheat oven to 350 and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Combine first 5 ingredients (through cinnamon) in large bowl; whisk together.
In separate bowl, cream Crisco, both sugars, vanilla and lemon.
Add eggs one at a time and mix until smooth.
Stir in dry ingredients, chocolate chips and nuts.

Pairs Well With
I've been tinkering with my chocolate chip cookie recipe for years. I passed out this most recent variation at a church potluck, where it was declared a DG (darn good) cookie. I think you'll agree, it's pretty DG!
