1 cup shortening
(Crisco sells premeasured packets, recommend)

Cream shortening and sugar. Aunt Fran and I always use a mixer. Add eggs. Add flour, baking soda, salt and hot water. Add vanilla and chocolate chips. Bake at 375 degrees about 10 minutes on an Air bake cookie sheet for best results. Don't overcook, they will be dry.
