Short Bread Chocolate Chip Cookies

3 Jan

I have kept this recipe a secret for 20 years. It is one of my most requested at Christmas. Pay special attention to the directions. If not followed exactly, it will not be successful.

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cream of tartar

1 cup butter, room temperature

1 cup light brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup Wesson vegetable oil ( yes it makes a difference)

1 tsp milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 (12 oz) bag chocolate chips

1 cup chopped pecans

Pre-heat oven to 350

Sift together first 4 ingredients and set aside. In a large bowl with mixer at high-speed beat butter until smooth. Add sugars and beat until combined. Reduce speed to medium; beat in next 4 ingredients until combined. Reduce speed to low; beat in flour until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by 2 rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes. Cool on pan 1 minute. Move to cooling racks
