Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookes

Cream together:
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
Add 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla and mix together
Add dry ingredients
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup chocolate chips or raisins. 
Mix that all together and bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes.

 Now that I am adult I have made a vow never to add raisins to anything.  There is no rational reason for raisins, especially in cookies.  My dream is that my furture children will grow up never knowing that raisins traditionally go into oatmeal cookies.  I have made a similar vow with Orange Juice.  If everything goes as planned my children will never know orange juice has pulp.
