These Oatmeal cookies are so good. They are full of raisins, chocolate chips and walnuts. This was one of the new Christmas cookies I baked this year.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup of vegetable shortening
3/4 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of brown sugar.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups Quick cooking oats
1 cup chopped walnuts, optional
1 cup raisins, optional
1 cups chocolate chips, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheet or cover with a non stick aluminum foil. Beat shortening, sugar and Brown sugar until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the wet mixture and mix well. Stir in oats, nuts, raisins, and chocolate chips. Use a table spoon and drop on cookie sheet two inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool slightly before removing from the cookie sheet. Cool on a rack. Makes 2 dozen.
