  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg. Sift flour, salt and soda together in bowl and set aside.
  2. Cream the butter, shortening, and sugars. Mix in eggs, vanilla & almond extract with an electric mixer. Slowly add flour mix to butter mix and mix well. Mix in oatmeal. Using a wooden spoon, stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Bake on a nonstick cookie sheet for 8-10 minute or until light brown. Cool on sheet for about 2 min; remove and finish cooling on wire rack. Eat warm with plenty of milk!
  4. *Variation: To make gigantic cookies, place about 1/2 cup of dough on the mid-left of a cookie sheet and squish to make about a 4 inches diameter; repeat with mid-right of sheet. Bake 10-15 minutes; remove from pan after 2-5 min to cool on wire rack.
