Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Mix in half the flour, the salt and baking soda into the creamed mixture.
Add the remaining flour and mix in well. Finally stir in the chocolate chips and if you choose,
the pecan or walnuts.

Scoop dough by the rounded Tablespoonfuls onto "light" metal cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake in pre-heated oven for 8 - 10 minutes.
Before removing from pan let sit for about a minute so that the cookie won't smoosh or squish up, etc.
