Cowboy Up

My oldest daughter and I made cookies two days ago. I LOVE to add oats in cookies. Sometimes I just throw a cup in my chocolate chip cookie dough. It just adds yummy texture. These cookies call for oats and are really yummy.

Cowboy Cookies (Not sure why they are called that...I'm assuming cowboys love them????)
1 c. shortening
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder
2 c. rolled oats
chocolate chips
Cream sugar, shortening and vanilla together, add eggs. Add remaining ingredients. Bake 10 minutes at 375 degrees.

I used dried cranberries instead of nuts since it is what I had on hand. YUM!
