Kendra's Chocolate Chip Cookies


I made these to take to choir yesterday (hoping treats would inspire better attendence...it's not really working) and thought I'd post them so we can always find the recipe. Kendra started making this recipe when she lived in Utah, because it was adjusted for the altitude by adding 4 T of water. Here in Clayton (close to sea level) we only add 2 T of water...so consider your altitude when making them. I usually use milk chocolate chips or a mixture of white chips and milk chocolate...they're also great with M&M's. Nuts or not? That's up to whether you're a "nutty" person or not.

Kendra's Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 C Crisco
1 C butter (this is really better than all butter)
4 T water (or 2 T here in Clayton at sea level)
2 C brown sugar
1 1/2 C white sugar
1 1/2 t vanilla
3 eggs
6 C flour(I held out 1/2 C until I baked a "test cookie" to see if it held it's shape...it did, so I didn't add any more...but you might need too)
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 1/2 t salt
3-4 C chips (or combination of M&M's and chips)
1 C chopped walnuts (if you like nuts)

Bake at 350 about 10-12 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheets.
