These cookies are moist and full of chocolate, they're really delicious. You'll probably want to throw away your old chocolate chip cookie recipe.

- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

- 1 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Add beaten egg and vanilla, mix well. Sift flour, baking soda and salt together. Stir into creamed mixture; blend thoroughly. Fold in chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheets. Bake in oven for 6-9 minutes, depending on size. Do not overbake. Cookies should be a little brown around the edges when taken out.
