COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Use your hands to mix the shortening, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Gradually mix in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop with an ice cream scoop onto ungreased baking sheets.
