Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 C butter or shortening
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1 1/2 c flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 c oats
2 c chocolate chips (or raisins)
Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda. Add shortening or butter and beat in eggs. Add flour then oats then chocolate chips.
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes until edges are set.
Notes: This is such a versatile cookie recipe and I use it often. I've added 1/2 c coconut to it as well as pecans. It also works well with whole wheat flour but I end up using about 1 1/3 cups instead of the half. Also, it works great to do 1 1/2 times the recipe as measurements come out msotly nice. Enjoy!
