Grandma's Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

It's hard to beat the Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that the Nestle's people print on their semi-sweet chocolate morsels package, but this is an excellent variation. See what you think.
  • 1-1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Crisco or other good shortening
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 12-ounce package semi-sweet morsels
  • 2 cups uncooked oatmeal (not instant)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Sift together the sifted flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

Cream together the shortening and the sugars. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, together with the hot water. When mixed well, add the pecans, semi-sweet morsels, oatmeal and vanilla.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F for 8 to 10 minutes.
Makes about 8 dozen cookies.

Prep time: 15 minutes; Cooking time: 10 minutes; Total time: 25 minutes

Making Chewy Cookies

If you like your cookies more chewy than crispy, put a piece of ordinary bread in with your cookies in an airtight container. I usually divide my batch of cookies, making one-half chewy (with bread) and one-half crispy (no bread).
