Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

My husband likes these a whole lot. For that reason alone I want to hang on to the recipe.

1 cup butter-flavored shortening
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2-2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

In a large bowl cream shortening, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Add vanilla, then add eggs and mix thoroughly. Combine the baking soda, salt and flour and stir into creamed mixture. Add oatmeal and chocolate chips and stir until well blended.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, let cool for 2 minutes on pan then remove to cool completely.
