Over eight years of perfecting and keeping this recipe a secret, I think it’s about time I share with everyone how to make my famous oatmeal chocolate chip cookies or as my friends call them “Tina’s Famous Cookies!” either way, keep reading to learn how to make this delectable treat!
1/2 cup shortening
1 tbsp butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup flour
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup chocolate chips (or more if you please!)
First blend together the shortening, butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Next, add the egg and vanilla; be sure to mix well!
Then add the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix enough so all dry ingredients are moist. Finally, mix in your oatmeal and chocolate chips!
Here’s where it gets fun! Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet (wax paper works well).
Bake at 350 for 8-11 minutes. (Makes 30 cookies!)
Bon Appetit 🙂
