Best Chocolate Chip Recipe

I got this recipe as a newly-wed.

  • 1 c shortening (jam-packed not loosely packed)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup instant oatmeal
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Cream shortening and sugars together.  Add eggs and vanilla, stir.  Sift together into mixture: 2 cups flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and stir into mixture.  Add dry oatmeal and chips.  Stir.  Texture is very thick.  Place rounded spoonfuls on cookie sheet.  Cook until slightly brown (no more than 10 minutes).  Remove them from oven while they still look slightly doughy.  Cool.
