"These are the best cookies. Don makes them, and Brix loves them. He told his mother to make them like grandpa lol. Don says this is doubled recipe and Darlene said these were the kid's favorite. Very old recipe. I wrote the recipe the way that they made them but I only used 1 bag of chips for this whole recipe and was enough for me, this makes alot of cookies, I would go 1/2 on it next time"

Step 1

Cream shortening and sugars. Add molasses.

Step 2

Sift dry ingredients.

Step 3

Beat eggs til fluffy and add to creamed mixture. Add half of flour mixture.

Step 4

Add 3 packages chocolate chips (i.e. 7 cups).

Step 5

Add rest of flour and oatmeal. (Don says really hard to mix at this point) and it is you need a very large bowl

Step 6

Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 400°F (I went about 11 to 12 minutes they come out a little brown because of molasses, Don has old oven--check sooner).

Step 7

Not sure how many this makes. My best guess--a lot. I did about 60 cookies a a teaspoon and still had alot of batter left.
