Mrs. Field’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

What's not to love about chocolate chip cookies?  They're delicious any time of the year.  Perfect for making ice cream sandwiches in the summer and amazing in the winter when they warm you and the house.

Yields: 60-70 cookies

2 cups butter-flavored Crisco
2 cups brown sugar
1½ cups sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla
 4 large eggs
1½ teaspoons salt
   teaspoons baking soda
6 cups flour
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
12 ounce bag chocolate chunks

Cream together Crisco and sugars.  Mix in remaining ingredients.  Drop by tablespoon (1½” mounds). Bake on wax paper or oil sprayed sheets at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
