Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

This is one of my favorite cookie recipes.  I got this recipe from my neighbor, Cherish.  I love the look and taste of these cookies.

The recipe says:

2 cups butter (or 1 cup margarine and 1 cup shortening) — that is quite different than using two cups straight butter.  We made them with 1 cup butter and 1 cup shortening.

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 4 eggs

Cream together butter, sugars, and eggs.  Then add:

  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups flour
  • 4 cups oatmeal (blended)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 bags (24 oz total) chocolate chips

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  (The original recipe said 375 but that was browning the outside of the cookies and they weren’t cooking in the middle).
