Why I Love This Recipe

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!

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup quick cooking oats
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter-flavored Crisco
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups premium bitter- or semisweet chocolate chips
(Ghirardelli or Guittard)
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
Kosher salt


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.

Spoon by rounded 1/4-cup blobs 2 in. apart on parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Sprinkle lightly with Kosher salt.

Bake 10-12 minutes, until light golden brown on outside edges but still soft in middle.
