Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies were on my Christmas baking list.  I got the recipe from a co-worker and they are so yummy!



1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup shortening (room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 t salt
1/4 cup milk
2 cups flour
3 cups quick oats
1 cup chocolate chips (or more, if you like them chocolatey!)
Mix sugar and shortening until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla, mix. Add baking soda, salt, and milk, mix.
Add flour, mix. Add oats and chocolate chips, mix (may need to mix by hand if too thick for mixer).
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes (I baked mine for 14 minutes).

  1. The recipe looks yummy. Tomorrow (Christmas Eve) the cousins are getting together to bake, and I’m going to make these. Thanks! The entire family loves chocolate AND oatmeal, so it will be a big success.

  2. One of my favorite cookies to make 🙂 Also, I have those same silicone baking sheets and absolutely love them — they make everything come out perfectly baked!
