I had a great chocolate chip/oatmeal cookie the other day while I was nibbling my way around my Middle daughter's kitchen. (I love doing that!) And I was told that the recipe came from the Pioneer Woman Cooks! blog.

(later) Well, I looked and I recipe. My daughter must have realized that I wouldn't find it and when we saw her yesterday, she had written it out and copied it for me.

Here it is...
  • 1 cup Shortening ( could Crisco non transfat)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs - beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans

Cream the sugars and shortening. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.

Add the soda and salt to the flour and mix. Now add it to the sugar/shortening and mix.

Add the oatmeal and the nuts. (Of course the nuts are optional...but why not!)

According to my daughter, Pioneer Woman rolls the dough into a log (or logs) and chills.

Alicia didn't chill the dough and simply used the 'drop' method. Your choice.

(Oops! Almost forgot...350 oven and cook for 10 minutes.)

And don't forget that it made 5 1/2 dozen cookies! Yeah! I also stick a slice of bread in the bottom of my cookie jar to keep the cookies fresh longer - it really works!

I will have to try this recipe. Sounds good. By the way...I noticed your Shelfari has a couple of mosaic books. How do you like them? Are they good ones?

Regarding the books...yes, they are good ones.

And no one noticed that this recipe has no chocolate chips in it! What happened? I just found out a few minutes ago and I simply added a couple of cups. Because I like them. The dough is in the refrigerator right now...

I had that thought the other day and just hadn't taken the time to post a comment! Sorry! It was not in the recipe, but I added them because I like them in my oatmeal cookies!
