Here is the recipe I use. I had to make a batch of these when I got home from work after reading and thinking about this thread today!!

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 C Butter Flavor Crisco
1 1/4 C firmly packed light brown sugar
2 T milk
1 T vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 C flour
1 t salt
3/4 t baking soda
1 C chocolate chips
1 C pecan pieces (optional)

Preheat oven to 375. Combine crisco, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl (I use my stand mixer). Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the egg and blend well. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda in a small bowl. Add to the creamed mixture until just blended. Add the chips and nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. DO not overbake. Remove from oven, cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing from the pan.
Makes 3 dozen 3" cookies.

NOTE - sometimes I add 1 cup of butterscotch chips to the batter in addition to the chocolate chips, its a nice combo.

Texas,
do you like the big, thin, rather crispy chocolate chip cookies? I love them and in fact sometimes make the dough and leave out the chocolate chips..I love that buttery flavor of them..I like the look of your recipe, maybe Cade and I will give it a try next week..I always melt my butter and I always put the dough on a warm cookie sheet that I've greased, even tho the recipe says not to..I love BIG cookies

I found the treasure!

Yes, it was treasure indeed.

I read all the posts about cookies and last night made up a batch. I took the advice to melt the butter, in hope of a chewy cookie. They were the best! My family literally could not stop eating them. The first plate was gone in a about five minutes.

I also had read in a book that for dense, tender cookies, you should mix by hand rather than mixer, to prevent overmixing and letting alot of air in. It must have worked!

I used a recipe from my favorite cook, Alton Brown, on Food Network.
Here is the recipe:

I use honey instead of sugar and that makes a very soft chewy cookie. Honey is sweeter than sugar so I use however much honey as the recipe calls for brown sugar and no white sugar.

You might try this

I posted this for Debbie and didn't see this thread. Here ya go.
Cream together: 2 c butter, 2 c sugar, 2 c brown sugar. Add: 4 eggs, 2 tsp. vanilla. Mix together: 4 c flour, 5 c oatmeal ( put small amounts into blender until it turns to powder.) 1 tsp. salt , 2 tsp. baking powder, 2 tsp. baking soda. Mix together all ingredients and add 24 oz. bag of chocolate chips, one 8 oz. Hershey bar grated, ( can be done in processor ) and 3 c chopped nuts. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets. Make golf-ball sized cookies, 2 inches apart, and bake at 375 degrees for 6 minutes. Makes 112 cookies.

This is either the Neiman Marcus recipe or the Mrs. Fields recipe. I think the folklore is bogus, but this recipe is fantastic.

Ready2Learn, I am glad you found help and got some yummy cookies out of the deal. Thanks for posting and letting us know what you did that worked. Now...if only we could figure out a way to share those cookies online we'd be all set!
