Mary's Unbeatable Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I heard stories of these cookies for about a year before Mary would relinquish the recipe :) Evidently, she used to make them for Mark and other friends and take them to school in high school. My cookies were never good enough for Mark til I got this recipe; now he loves them! You can put any kind of chip you want in them, but we like a combo of chocolate and butterscotch the best :)

2 ½ cup flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking soda
1 cup Crisco
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tsp. Pure vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 pkg. (10-oz) choc. Chunks

Directions: Preheat oven to 375. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add Crisco and mix until blended. Add sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, and chocolate. Bake 8-10 minutes until the edges of the cookies begin to look slightly chewy. Makes approx. 28 medium sized cookies.
**Mary likes to throw in a little peanut butter, oatmeal, or nuts into the batter for variation 

I made these cookies about 2 months ago and then again this week. So good! Thanks for posting. I'll try with oatmeal mentioned in other comments next time.
