These are another of my favorites. I like the dough best of all of course.
3/4 cup Shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Beat together shortening, sugars, egg, water and vanilla until creamy. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Drop by rounded spoonfuls on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes
*I sometimes have to put some extra flour in this recipe. If the dough seems to not be thick enough add extra flour til the normal cookie consistency.
**If you double the recipe do 3 cups flour and only 5 cups oats**
