Secret Recipe Cookie (BYU)

I got this recipe from the BYU Dietitian Students Cooking Lab while I was a student nearly 10 years ago-wish I was a Dietitian student, but I studied otherwise. Their class was handing out recipes and samples and I was lucky enough to get offered one. The very title of the cookie makes me laugh as they were freely passing them out to those of us passing by.

1 cup Butter Flavored Crisco
1 cup White Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups quick oats (I frequently use regular oats)
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream Crisco and sugars together until smooth and creamy. Then add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Drop onto cookie sheet in desired size (teaspoon to Tablespoon). Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes.

*I always like to stay on the lower side of the times given and then let them rest for 1 minute on the pan before removing to cooling racks. I think this helps the cookies stay nice and soft.
