  3. Flavor Ingredients
  4. Melt shortening in microwave (to soft stage), then beat sugar and flavor extracts into shortening until creamy. Add egg and beat until smooth.

  6. Add the chocolate chips and pecans and blend by hand.
  7. Bake cookies 8-10 minutes at 375oF. Cool for two minutes or so, then remove from sheet to cool. (= 190oC)
  8. Use a double wall (insulated) cookie sheet.
  9. Variations:   You can use 1 cup milk chocolate chips and 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips instead of just milk chocolate chips. The flavor is not as mild, but is very chocolate.  You can also substitute walnuts for pecans, but it isn't Texas that way.
  1. Crust:
  2. combine thoroughly. bake on bottom of springform pan at 350F for 15 minutes
  3. Cheesecake:

  5. Bake between 350 and 375F for thirty-five minutes.
  6. (Alternative, bake at 450F for ten minutes and then 250F for one hour).
