Cowboy Cookies

I love Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks....ok well, actually I love everything Gooseberry Patch! Who is with me on that? :) Anyway, here is recipe From Gooseberry's Best Ever Cookies book...the recipe was submitted by their own JoAnn. I love these cookies...they are flavorful and chewy...everything a cookie deserves. :) This recipe makes a very large amount of cookies....great for our soon to be days of  hauling meals out to the field while the farmer and hiredhands are doing field work and seeding our crops. Spring cannot come soon enough for me!

3 c. shortening
6 eggs, beaten
3 c. sugar
3 c. brown sugar packed
2 t. vanilla extract
6 c. all-purpose flour
1-1/2 t. baking powder
1 T. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
6 c. long-cooking oats, uncooked
2 -12-oz. pkgs. semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a very large bowl, blend together shortening, eggs, sugars and vanilla; set aside.

In a separate large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well.

Slowly stir flour mixture into shortening mixture. Add oats and chocolate chips; mix evenly. Form into walnut-size balls; place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, until edges are lightly golden. Cool on wire racks.

Go on now...mix up a batch!
