Heavenly Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a recipe I got from my MIL.  My hubby and I used to make them all the time when we were dating. Ah the memories. We haven't made them in years, but they are back and they are here to stay.
Cream together:
½ C. Butter
⅔ C. Shortening
1C. Sugar
1C. Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 tsp. Vanilla

In another bowl mix:
3 ½ C. White or Wheat Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt

Slowly add flour mixture to sugar mixture until combined.
Then add and mix in:
12 oz. Chocolate Chips
1 C. Coarsely Chopped Nuts
Bake at 375° for 8 minutes


Looks so easy! I'll have to try them soon!
