Nothin' says lovin' like somethin' from the oven...

The old Pillsbury slogan is right on.  Homebuilt vs purchased?  Never a contest.  You see, home built comes complete with the love that went in to the product.  Granted, at any given time, an Oreo can say a lot.  But oh, those chocolate chip cookies...especially warm!  You probably have your own special recipe, but just in case, here's the one that produced the 8 doz. cookies cooling on the counter.  Enjoy and know you are loved!

Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup Butter Flavored Crisco
2 cups white sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
4 eggs
4 cups flour
5 cups oatmeal
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
2-12 oz. pkgs. Chocolate chips

Cream shortening and butter. Add sugars and beat until mixed. Add eggs and beat until
fluffy. Add vanilla. In separate bowl, combine 2 cups flour and 2 cups oatmeal. Add 1
tsp. salt, soda, and baking powder. Stir until well mixed. Add remaining flour and
oatmeal. Add remaining salt, soda, and baking powder. Stir until well mixed. Add liquid
ingredients and stir until blended. Add chocolate chips and stir. Using a small ice-cream
scoop, place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet. (Or discover the true bliss of parchment paper!)  Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
