Mmmm, Mmmm Monday: Best Chocolate Chip Cookies. EVER!

Look at these faces, don't they look like this cookie dough is pure bliss?!  I don't claim for this to be healthy, but it is delicious!!!  I know everyone has a Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe in their recipe box, but this is seriously worth trying.  I have made this recipe several times and I have yet to hear anything but delicious comments! 
This recipe came from my Waco friend, Kimberly;)  So, I am assuming she got the recipe from Mimi.

Mimi's Chocolate Chip Cookies
2/3 cup Crisco sticks
2/3 cup Butter (soft)
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 tsp. Vanilla
Mix these ingredients with beaters.

Stir in pecans or nuts (optional).

3 cups Flour
1 tsp. Soda
1 tsp. Salt
12 oz. bag of Chocolate Chips (I prefer Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips)
Mix into other ingredients with a large mixing spoon.

Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Serve warm with Blue Bell ice cream!
