Don't over mix. I used a stand mixer and even on the lowest setting, it mixed the butter mixture so well (as air gets into the mixture) that the cookies became more crunchy than chewy. For chewy cookies, fold the wet and dry ingredients together. Also, it works better if you mix dry ingredients together before incorporating wet and dry Mixtures. Shortening is less sinful, but if you're going to enjoy a cookie, go to town and use butter instead! The salt makes more sense bringing out the flavor in butter than Crisco. Overall, good recipe and I liked that it went easy on white sugar.
