Retro Chocolate Chip Cookies Ad & Recipe

This week is Chocolate Chip Cookie week, and you can never have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes. I plan to post a recipe a day, starting off with this Crisco Recipe from the 1990s. I will admit, though, that I would use butter in my recipe! Sorry, Crisco, I love you in pie crusts and other baked goods.  I do really like your Advertisement! 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 
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

I think you've had mine. They are thick and chewy with extra sugar, flour and vanilla. I'll email you the recipe if you want. It's from Food and Wine, but I can't find the link for some reason.
