Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup shortening ( I ran out of Crisco, so I used butter for half of this)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 1/4 cups flour
1 cup chocolate chips (rather than run to the store, I chopped Hershey’s dark chocolate kisses)
optional 1 cup chopped nuts

Bake at 350* F for 15 minutes.

I also have substituted maraschino cherries and shredded coconut for the chocolate and nuts. They turned out with a more cake-like texture, though.
