- 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.
- 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!
