the pfeiffer-whites' house best cookies

48 Servings
1 cup Flour
1 cup Sugar
½ cup Crisco shortening
1 tablespoon Molasses
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla
¾ teaspoon Baking soda
1 cup Oatmeal
1 cup Chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients. Bake at 350°F for approximately 8-10 minutes. Do not overcook. Marilyn allows for exactly 9 minutes in her oven. Make certain that you check at 8 minutes. They will look almost undercooked.

Remove from oven when they are just turning tan on top, yet still soft.

Yields 4 dozen.

Awaiting every guest in his or her room is "a jar of these cookies along with a basket of fruit. Guests seem to really enjoy the 'homemade and old-fashioned taste,' and they are always a topic of conversation!"
