Chocolate Chip Cookies

Made these today- I was fooling around with a couple different recipes and came up with this one. My family told me to frame it, so I guess it's worth posting :)

1/2 C Butter- unsalted
1/4 C Crisco
3/4 C Sugar
3/4 C Brn. Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla

2 C All- Purpose Flour
1/2-3/4 C Oats (I start with 1/2 C then add more if batter is too wet still after combining
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 C Milk Chocolate Chips


Mix butter, Crisco and sugars for about 2 min. not too long or cookies will be flat
Add eggs, one at a time
Add Vanilla, mix briefly

Combine dry ingredients except oats- sift and then add slowly to wet ingredients, combining only until flour is combined. Add oats until batter is thick, but bot dry kind of think :)

Add C Chips and then I find, the best tasting cookies come if you put batter in container and then put in fridge for an hour or even over night. The flavor is better. But either way- these are great. I didnt refrigerate these tonight, and kids loved them.
