Why I Love This Recipe

My very own recipe that gets lots and lots of compliments. Be sure to not overbake them.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1 3.4 ounce package vanilla instant pudding mix
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup old-fashioned oats
2 1/4 cups flour
1 12 ounce chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups pecans, toasted and chopped


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter heavy large cookie sheets. Beat vegetable shortening and butter in large bowl until light. Gradually add white and brown sugars and beat mixture until fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla pudding mix, vanilla, baking soda, water, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg and salt and mix until well blended. Mix in oats, then flour. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop cookie dough by large rounded spoonfuls (about 3 tablespoons each) onto prepared cookie sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until cokies appear dry and tops are lightly cracked and soft when pressed, about 9 minutes. (DO NOT OVERBAKE) Cool cookies 5 minutes on cookie sheets then transfer
