Chocolate Chip Cookies 1

2/3 cup shortening (part butter)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 cup chopped pecans
One 6 oz pkg semisweet chocolate pieces (1 cup)

Heat oven to 375F. Mix shortening, sugar, egg, and vanilla thoroughly. Measure flour by dipping method. For a softer rounded cookie, add 1/4 cup more flour. Stir dry ingredients together; blend in. Mix in nuts and chocolate pieces. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough about 2 inch apart on un-greased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cookies should still be soft. Cool on cookie rack.
