Crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. These are the perfect brownie like chocolate cookie.
Some cookies are easy to make by hand. When using crisco, it is almost essential to use a mixer to get the correct texture from mixing.
3/4 cup crisco shortening
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the crisco and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla. Continue to mix until fluffy. Add the baking soda and salt. Add the cocoa. Slowly add the flour. The batter will be firm. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
Roll the batter into tablespoon size balls. Allow 1 inch between balls for spread during baking. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Allow them to cool before removing them from the baking sheet.
