Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

The boys (big & little) have been asking for cookies again, so I grabbed out my stuff & decided to make some. This recipe is a family favorite. It is one from Jeremy's mom, and I think it is Jeremy favorite cookie. At least anytime I make a different recipe he usually bites into looks a little confused & says "This isn't my moms, is it?" So I thought I might as well share it with everyone else:  

My Favorite part of cookies, Cookie dough. 

Golden Deliciousness 

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 I don't know what I am doing wrong, but either way they are delicious. So enjoy.
