Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Baking with Oatmeal adds a crunchiness and makes the baked item lighter (amazing in breads!). I brought these cookies to a family Shabbat simcha. It was such a hit that I've been asked to bring it to every simcha since.

Onto the recipe:
1/2 cup shortening (see previous blog on margarine/shortening)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour mixed with 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup oatmeal.
1/2 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, 180 degrees C.
  2. Cream the shortening. Add sugars and mix.
  3. Add egg and mix.
  4. Add dry ingredients and mix.
  5. Add oatmeal and mix.
  6. Add chocolate chips and hand mix.
  7. Drop by teaspoonful on greased, floured pan. I personally use a silicone baking sheet or baking paper and skip the greased, floured part.
  8. Bake for around 15 minutes until the cookies can be lifted without being stuck to the sheet.
Note that this recipe does not need a mixer.

Yields over 3 dozen cookies.
