My Favorite Oatmeal Cookies

I found this recipe years ago and they are my go to cookie recipe.  I'm not a huge fan of oatmeal cookies but I love these. They are so good I often eat 5 a day (plus a few more).

Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 C. butter, softened
1/2 C. Crisco, softened
1 C. brown sugar
1 C. sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 t. salt
2 t baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
2 1/4 C. flour
2 C. old fashioned oats
1 package mild chocolate chips

Cream together butter, Crisco, and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well. Add salt, soda, powder, and flour and mix just until combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Scoop loosely into balls using cookie scoop and bake on cookie sheet for 8-12 minutes @ 350. (My convection oven takes about 7 1/2 to 8)  They should look not quite done when you pull them out and let them sit for a few minutes before removing them from the cookie sheet.
