  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Stir in the pecans and chocolate chips. Use a measuring tablespoon to round dough into balls. Don't roll the balls, just make them rounded. Place onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until centers are set and very lightly browned. Don't overbake. Cool 2 to 3 minutes before removing from baking sheets. Make sure you have lots of ice cold milk!!!

This is a great cookie recipe - I have made these cookies at least 4 times and have gotten raves every time. It also makes a massive amount (of small cookies) or a medium batch of larger cookie...

Very delicious cookie...soft and chewy, as promised. I really enjoy the texture, which is kind of similar to a really good peanut butter cookie. The taste is unique for a chocolate chip cookie...

I've tried a ton of cookie recipes, and this one is by far my favorite!! I even use the dough (made with EggBeaters) as cookie dough for my homemade cookie dough ice cream. DEFINITELY do not o...

If you flatten the cookies before putting them in the oven, then you will need less time for them to bake, say closer to only 8 minutes. If you do not flatten them and you drop them from a table...
