Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

This is a great compromise cookie for us.  My kids always want chocolate chip, I always want oatmeal! 

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
3/4 c. shortening
2/3 c. brown sugar
2/3 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. soda
2 c. oatmeal
2 Tbsp. water
1 pkg. (12 oz.) chocolate chips
1/2 c. nuts

Cream sugar, shortening, eggs and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients.  Stir in oatmeal and water.  Mix in chocolate chips and nuts.  Bake at 375 for 8 min. Do not over bake.

Notes: I double the recipe except the chocolate chips, one bag will still do a double batch nicely.
