Grub It Up: Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

We don't need a good reason to bake goodies in our house, but when we have one, we jump on it. So, to show a small token of thanks to our teachers during Teacher Appreciation week, we baked these SUPER yummy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and gave one each to our teachers in a little bag with a sweet sticker mom made. Of course we ate a bunch ourselves as well. These are definitely worth baking and don't bother to ask what's in Crisco Butter -- it doesn't matter. It makes these ridiculously delicious.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (adapted from Redhead Can Decorate's recipe)

- 1 cup butter flavored Crisco
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3 cups uncooked oats
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. Mix Crisco, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Add oats and chocolate chips, mix well. Form 1 inch balls onto cooking sprayed or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake about 20 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
