1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup shortening
2 cups and 1/2 TSP of flour (sifted)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup to 1 cup of chocolate chip ( all depends on how many chocolate chips you like.)
Put the sugar and brown sugar together and mix. Then add the shortening and mix that all together good. Then add the eggs and mix really good together. (Builds good muscles) Then sift in the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix, Mix, Mix. Then add the vanilla and mix again. Then add the oatmeal and chocolate chips and mix AGAIN. I swear all this mixing makes these the best. :)Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Until light golden brown. Let them sit on the rack for about a hour before eating. If you eat one before they will seem like they are not done. Just be patient.
The Best Chocolate Chip cookies. They are always chewy and never let me down. I have made these cookies since I was probably 8 years old. I was well known around the neighborhood for these cookies. I was also the only one that could make them ever turn out. The trick is to only leave them in for 8-10 minutes and take them out even though they don't look that done. They will be done after they sit for about a hour. YUMMY!
