Cookies, I want one! I love this recipe. Not any cookie but a Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie.  You'll never believe who's recipe this is.   Hilary Clinton's Famous Oatmeal CCC.  I think I even voted for her, and I know for sure that I vote for these cookies.  They are chewy in the middle and crispy on the edge.   I have made these twice and this is my kind of cookie.  Just take a look! Wicked good cookies. These are going to be my go to recipe for Oatmeal CCC.  I found this recipe at Loni Platt, Oatmeal CCC Saltbox House

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups rolled oats  (I used old fashion oats)
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   Line baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly brush with vegetable oil.  

In a large bowl combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and the rolled oats.  Using a whisk mix all these ingredients together to combine.  Set aside. 

In your large mixing bowl mix the shortening with both sugars and mix till light and fluffy.  Add the vanilla and the eggs and mix well.   Gradually add the flour/oat mixture and mix slowly.  Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.    

I used my small ice cream scoop and placed the scoops of dough on the parchment paper.  Bake for about 8 minutes.   I remove the cookies from the oven when the tops are still a little wet looking.  They will continue to bake while cooling on the baking sheet. Then remove to a cooling rack.  Or drop the dough from a tablespoon.    These cookies are very good.  They are chewy in the middle and crispy on the edge.
