- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- In a large bowl, cream together shortening, butter, and sugar, and beat until light, about 2 minutes.
- Add egg, milk, and vanilla, and beat for another minute.
- Combine flour, salt and baking soda and add to the creamed mixture. Mix until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans.
- Drop big heaping spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet, spacing well apart. Bake 10 minutes until golden in colour, but still appearing moist. Cool 2 minutes on sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
