I love Crisco!

I know. you threw up in your mouth a little bit just reading that, didn't you? sorry.

But, I do. A couple of months ago I started seeing recipes (including from darling Martha) that listed Crisco as an ingredient. I haven't seen Crisco listed since it became considered a poison in the 90's. Now that the new Crisco has no trans fats it can be used again. I'm sure it is still a poison but I don't want to know about it if it is. I just made the best damn chocolate chip cookies I've made in years! They have that wonderful crispy/flaky texture I remember from my childhood.

And these cookies are awesome. We gobbled them up!
