Nani's Famous Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is about 70 years old. Its amazing. You can barely tell its got oatmeal, since it doesn't turn out like a typical oatmeal cookie. Its also got an amazing secret ingredient. You can see it below.

So heres the trick to baking...
Normal elevation, 350 degrees, 12-14mins baking time
Utah/Colorado/High Altitude, 275 degrees, 8ish minutes baking time (you have to play with the time a little)

1 1/8c Crisco
2 eggs
3/4c brown sugar
3/4c white sugar
1/4c frozen orange juice concentrate (not oj!)
1tsp vanilla
1c flour
1tsp baking soda
2 1/2c oats (quaker quick oats)
1tsp salt
1c nuts (Nani only used walnuts. I only use pecans, since walnuts make my mouth itchy)
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (12oz)
  • Cream all of 1st group together.
  • Sift out lumps of 2nd group, then stir slowly into wet. (Oats won't sift, duh.)
  • After incorporated, mix well.
  • Add 3rd group to dough & mix carefully.
  • Spoon into balls onto greased/papered tray.
  • Bake on 3rd rack up.
  • Turn 1/2 way through baking.
