Honey Maple Cookies


1 cup shortening
3/4 cup honey
3/4 cup maple syrup
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans


In a large bowl, beat shortening until light and fluffy. Add honey and syrup, a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition (mixture will appear curdled). Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to honey mixture and mix just until moistened. Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Yield: 5 dozen.
