Chocolate Chip Cookie Week: Retro Ad & Recipe

This week is Chocolate Chip Cookie Week, and you can never have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes. To celebrate, here's a Crisco Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe from the 1990s.  (Yes, the 90s are Retro!) I will admit, though, that I would use butter in my recipe! Sorry, Crisco, I love you in pie crusts and other baked goods, but not in my cookies. I do really like your Advertisement, though! Don't you feel you could 'almost take a bite out of this recipe'!

1990s Crisco Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup Butter Flavor Crisco (I use butter)
1-1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 egg
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chocolate chips
1 cup pecan pieces
