Yummy Cow Girl Cookies

The Peep and I made these delicious cookies to take for snack at our cousin's house for play date. They are one of my FAVORITE cookies of all time! I remember eating them in elementary school when the mom of a friend made them. She kept them in a tin like a fruit cake might come in and man- they were delicious!

The recipe:

1 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
2 cups quick oats
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream shortening and sugars- mix well. Add eggs- beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients. Dough will be CRUMBLY. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto Silpat covered cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.

The Peep and I baked three pans at the same time in our cool convection oven and rotated after 5 minutes, then 5 more and then for 2 for a total of 12 minutes. This recipe makes about 9 dozen cookies.
We are working hard at eating all of the cookies as fast as possible!
