From a bakeress...oatmeal cookies

This is probably one of my absolute favorite cookie recipes.  They're soft, chewy, vanilla-y and chocolate chips make them all the better (in my opinion).

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
3 cups quick rolled oats
1 cup nuts, raisins or chocolate chips (optional)

Thoroughly cream together shortening and sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Sift together flour, salt and soda.  Gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.  Stir in oats and/or nuts/raisins/chocolate chips.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
