Oatmeal Cookies

This is a recipe I got from one of my co-workers. He said that he used to eat them for lunch every day when he lived in California. He talked the cook into giving him the recipe, so here it is. It's kind of weird measurements since he had to cut the recipe down from a huge batch to a smaller batch but it's worth it.

Oatmeal Cookies

5 Tb. Shortening
5 Tb. Butter
1/2 C. + 1 Tb. Brown Sugar
1/2 C. + 1 Tb. White Sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 2/3 C. Oatmeal
1 C. + 2 Tb. Flour
1/4 tsp. Vanilla

1. Cream together shortening, butter, and sugars. Add egg and vanilla and mix until smooth. Slowly add the rest of the ingredients and mix. If desired, add butterscotch and chocolate chips if desired.
2. Roll dough into small balls and place on ungreased baking sheet. Flatten cookies with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Sprinkle a little extra sugar on top of the cookies.
3. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 - 10 minutes.
