Clinton Cookies

I got this recipe at least 15 years ago from a friend in Racine, WI, Melody Bernhardt. I would babysit Jordan and she would send cookies! Her comment on the recipe...."The best thing to come from the Clinton administration!" These are very good.

Clinton Cookies

1 1/2 c flour
1 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 c shortening(I use 1/2 butter and 1/2 Crisco)
1/2 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
2 c old fashioned oats
12 oz pkg chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. combine flour, salt and baking soda and set aside. Cream shortening, sugar, vanilla and eggs. Gradually mix in the flour mixture. Stir in oats and then chocolate chips. Drop by tsp(I used a cookie scoop) onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes(or a bit more)
