Why I Love This Recipe

Growing up, my mom made these chocolate chip cookies. I always loved them because they were soft instead of hard and crunchy like so many cookies. Even after all these years, she still remembers that these are my favorite.

Chocolate chips or raisins


Cream shortening, brown sugar, and white sugar.

Add milk, salt, vanilla and flour.

Add chocolate chips or raisins.

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
