Here's another great recipe submitted by Diane Geary

cookies on  cookie sheetP.J.'s Chocolate Chip Cookies
         Chef P.J. Harrison - P.J.'s Café

Combine:
2 1/4 cups flour, sifted
1 heaping tsp. baking soda
Pinch of salt
In a separate mixing bowl, combine and blend well:
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
3/4 cups granulated sugar
1 cup Crisco (fill to the top and level)
Add:
2 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. water
Beat on low until well mixed. Add two large eggs, beating on low until well mixed, then on high until mixture is fluffy like egg whites. Slowly add flour, salt and soda mixture until you reach cookie dough consistency. Add slowly, so dough does not get dry. Less flour gives crispier cookies. More flour gives a cake-like cookie. You may not use all of the dry mixture. Add two cups (one large bag), or more to taste, of Nestle's chocolate chips. You may substitute M&Ms or add nuts, as desired. Drop cookie-sized portions of dough on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes, or until lightly golden.
