Pecan Crispies
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  shortening
  • 1/2  cup  butter, softened
  • 2 1/2  cups  packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 2  eggs
  • 2 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1  cup  chopped pecans, toasted if desired
  • 1/2  cup  semisweet chocolate pieces (optional)
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease cookie sheets; set aside. In a large bowl beat shortening and butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour, the pecans, and, if desired, chocolate pieces.

2. Divide dough into eight equal portions (about 2/3 cup each). Place one to three of the portions on each cookie sheet, leaving about 7 inches between portions. Flatten portions until 1/2 inch thick.

3. Bake about 20 minutes or until tops are golden (do not underbake). Cool on wire racks for 2 minutes. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut each cookie round into six wedges. Transfer cookies to wire racks; cool.
