Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

We love these cookies. We make them about every couple of weeks. In order for them to last as soon as they cool, I place them in Ziploc bags and place them in the freezer. Then we all just take a couple out as needed for our lunchs or for snacks.

I got this recipe from a great family cookbook called Susie's Cookbook.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 C flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 C shortening
3/4 C brown sugar
3/4 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp water
2 eggs
2 C Oatmeal
12 oz. Chocolate Chips

Cream shortneing; add sugar, vanilla and water. Beat until creamy. Add eggs. Gradually add flour, salt and soda. Stir in oatmeal with a wooden spoon; add chocolate chips. Blend well.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.
