Awesome Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recently, my preschool director greeted the teachers with warm chocolate chip cookies.  What a nice treat - at any time of day!   Miss Alice is probably the sweetest lady I know.  She is always thinking of others and to have warm cookies when we walk in the door - nothing beats it.  This is a recipe she had from years back, and I thought they were extra yummy.  But then, I think most warm chocolate chip cookies are amazing. This recipe uses Buttered Flavored Crisco and a little hot water.  I substituted dark brown sugar for her light brown sugar but either would work. I made these recently for a Husker Football Party and got great reviews from my friends and family!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup Buttered Flavored Crisco
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp hot water
1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix Crisco, sugars, eggs and vanilla.  Add  rest of ingredients.  Drop by tablespoon onto a greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 8 - 10 minutes.  Enjoy!
