My grandmother would send a huge box of cookies and candies to us every Christmas when I was a child. She always included these cookies because they were my dad's favorite (mine too). I am allergic to walnuts so if I decide to add nuts I use almonds. Now my daughter and I enjoy making them together.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

  • Beat shortening, honey, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add egg and vanilla extract; beat until light and fluffy.

  • Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl; stir into honey mixture until just incorporated and dough comes together. Fold chocolate chips and almonds into dough. Drop spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges just begin to brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute any nut for the almonds. You can substitute butter for the shortening.

I have never counted how many cookies this makes; the first batch is usually gone before the second comes out of the oven (the batter always seems to disappear also)! I hope you enjoy. Also don't let them over-brown!
