Grandma's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Made these recently as I was craving chocolate chip cookies.   Every time we went to Grandma and Grandpa's house, you could count on there being chocolate chip cookies to be eaten.  

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yield:  6-7 dozen cookies

1 Cup Shortening
2/3 Cup Cup White Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 and 1/3 Cup Flour
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Chopped Nuts (optional)

Step 1:  Cream together the sugars, shortening, eggs and vanilla thoroughly.
Step 2:  Spoon flour into dry measuring cup.  Level off and pour measured flour onto waxed paper.  
Step 3:  To the flour, add the baking soda and salt.  Stir thoroughly.
Step 4:  Add the dry ingredients mixture to the creamed mixture and mix well.
Step 5:  Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Step 6:  Drop by teaspoon fulls onto greased baking sheet.
Step 7:  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

Please note, adjust the bake time as necessary for your oven.  15 minutes was a little long for me.  I ended up baking them for about 10 minutes per sheet.
