Grandma D's Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 10 mins

I love a good cookie - But THESE cookies have made me melt since grade school. I am careful not to make too many when I'm home alone for any length of time. There will be none for anyone else and I am left with "cookie eaters remorse" for DAYS afterwards. This is my favorite *instant gratification* treat. You won't be disappointed... Unless someone gets to them before you do. (Thanks, Grandma D!)


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix together shortening, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the baking soda that has been dissolved in hot water.
  4. Mix together the flour and salt in a separate bowl, then add to the first mixture.
  5. Add the oatmeal and chocolate chips.
  6. Drop the dough by teaspoon on to an ungreased baking pan, 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  8. Remove from baking sheet and allow to cool.
  9. ENJOY!

Just like my Mother used to make. Growing up, I thought this was the only way to make chocolate chip cookies!!! These are my all time favorite chippers!

These cookies are, without a doubt, the very best chocolate chip cookie that I or my family have ever eaten. I can't even let them cool off before someone is taking one! (or two, or three). Excellent recipe! God Bless You, Grandma D.
