INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 1/2 cups butter flavored shortening
- 2 cups light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 cups cinnamon chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, light brown sugar and dark brown sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the milk and vanilla, blending until the mixture is light and fluffy. Combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter until well blended. Mix in cinnamon chips and if using, pecans. Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, just until the cookies lose their gloss. Remove from the cookie sheets to wire racks to cool.
