Edwin's chocolate chip cookies

I made homemade chocolate chip cookies yesterday and you need the recipe. I usually double the recipe since there's five of us! These are "Edwin's ultimate cookies".

3/4 Cup butter flavored crisco
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 ts. salt
2 tb. milk
1 tb. vanilla
3/4 ts. baking soda
1 egg
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup pecan pieces (finely chopped) opt. 

Heat oven to 375. 

Cream butter flavor crisco, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla in large bowl. Blend until creamy. Blend in egg. In another bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture, gradually (in mixing bowl or with hand mixer). Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.  Drop rounded Tablespoonfuls of dough on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake  10 minutes for chewy cookies (they will look light and moist) DO NOT OVERBAKE or 11 to 13 minutes for crisp cookies.
