Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Today I thought I would share with you our families favorite cookie recipe. It's originally from my mother-in-law & the most requested cookie in our home. (Most often by my hubby or my little dude.)

Cookie Dough- My Favorite Part

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies
2 1/2 c. White Sugar
2 1/2 c. Brown Sugar
2 1/2 c. Shortening
5 eggs
2 Tbs. Vanilla
1/4 c. Milk

Stir & Mix it in all together.
Then add:
5 c. flour
2 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
2 1/2 tsp. Salt
2 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder

Beat until it is all mixed well.
Then add:
5 c. of oatmeal &
2 c. (or More) of Chocolate & Butterscotch Chips.

Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.

This recipe makes a lot (like 7 dozen or so) So I would cut it in half unless you want to have cookies galore. Usually I make a full batch & freeze most of . For some reason when I make them they are almost softer after I freeze them & then thaw them. So enjoy.
