Dishpan Cookies

I decided to make some cookies, so I dug through some cookbooks. I found a recipe but I was not crazy about some of the ingredients, but the picture was awesome. The picture in the cookbook looked like the best cookies on the planet. Sooooo I adjusted the things I did not like and made the cookies. Well, the picture was probably faked by perfectly placing all of the chips and nuts. Well, here is my version and the chips and nuts are barried in the dough but the cookies were good! Dishpan Cookies

2 cups butter flavored shortening
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cup oats (quick or old fashion, uncooked)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cups peanut butter chips
2 cups pecans

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease baking sheet or use parchment paper. Combine shortening and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until well blended. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Combine flour, oats, salt, baking soda and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Gradually add dry ingredients to cream mixture. With spoon mix in chocolate and peanut butter chips, and pecans. Drop spoonfuls of dough 3 inches a part on prepared baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes or until light brown. Do not overbake. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
