Cream your shortening, white sugar and brown sugar and then add one egg at a time while beating well with a mixer. Add the vanilla and mix well.
In a separate bowl you will sift together the flour and baking soda. You will then stir this dry mixture into the creamy wet cookie dough batter and mix well. Next you will stir in the chocolate chips and the pecans.
If the dough seems a bit too dry simply add a few teaspoons of milk into the batter to moisten.
You will then use a little less than a cup of cookie dough to arrange on your cookie sheet for baking. Understand that these cookies will rise and spread, therefore you should place the cookies apart enough to allow for this.
You will have already preheated your oven to 325 degrees for baking your cookies. Place your cookie sheet of cookies into the oven and bake for approximately 8 minutes and then remove them from the oven before they are completely done and allow them to cool.
Note: you can leave out the chocolate chips and replace them with peanut butter baking chips or you can leave either type of baking chip out and make pecan cookies as well.
