The Best Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

This is the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe that I have ever made. You can make it with any combination of chips, I like all semi sweet but milk and or white would also be good. You also could omit the chocolate and add 1 cup raisins and a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon for a great oatmeal raisin as well.

The Best Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
3 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chocolate chips( a combo of your favorite flavors-milk, semi sweet, white)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix everything except oats, flour, and chocolate chips. Stir in oats, flour, and chocolate chips (probably by hand unless you have a great mixer). Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly brown and still looking a little gooey on top. This dough freezes very well.
