Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from Jean Uhlenhake
1 cup butter flavor Crisco
1 cup granulated sugar (plus more for rolling dough in)
1 cup packed brown sugar (light or golden)
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups oatmeal (I used Quaker Oats 1-minute)
1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl cream together Crisco, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add the dry mix to the creamed mixture. Stir in the oatmeal. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Shape dough into balls the size of walnuts and roll in sugar. Place on cookie sheet and flatten slightly with a fork. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Enjoy!
