Why I Love This Recipe

My friend Lynne shared this recipe with me and it is a family favorite. You can vary the flavor of pudding mix you use and I whiz my oats in the blender until fine because my DS doesn't like oats.


Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1 pkg. (4-serving size) instant vanilla pudding mix
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. water
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup old fashioned oats
2-1/4 cups flour
1 pkg. (12 oz.) chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Grease cookie sheets.

Beat shortening and butter in a large bowl until light.

Gradually add white and brown sugar, beating until light and fluffy.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.

Add pudding mix, vanilla extract, baking soda,water, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, salt, flour and oats (may be ground to a fine powder). Mix until blended.

Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
