Yankee Quaker Cookies

When I was little, my best friend Honor's mom made these cookies for us and let me tell you, you've never had one like it.  These cookies are absolutely amazing! A buttery, chewy treat filled with brown sugar, chocolate, and oatmeal.  Sometimes I stir in butterscotch chips as well, though it's hard to improve these!

I made these recently for a party with the intention of making them into ice cream sandwiches, but unfortunately- everyone was too full! I sent everyone home with a goodie bag instead so I wouldn't eat them all!
* 2 c. brown sugar, packed
* 1/4 c. granulated sugar
* 2 eggs
* 1 c. oatmeal
* 1 c. chocolate chips
* 1 c. crisco
* 2 c. flour
* 1 tsp. baking soda
* 1 tsp. salt
* 2 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 375.  Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt.  In a separate bowl, cream together shortening and brown sugar.  Add eggs, vanilla, and oatmeal to sugar mixture.  Add the flour mixture to wet ingredients  and mix until well combined.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Form into 1 inch dough balls, then roll in granulated sugar.  Bake 8-12 minutes until edges are just slightly brown and the tops crack (be sure to keep an eye on them and take them out right when the tops crack; they will be chewy).  Enjoy!
