Friday Foodie: Cowboy Cookies

Peanut butter and chocolate cookies are one of my favorites. These "Cowboy Cookies" take those two ingredients and add in some extra that make it even more delicious. It's one of my families holiday traditions.

Cowboy Cookies 

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour (white or wheat or a combination of both)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups oatmeal
6 oz chocolate chips

Cream first four ingredients together.
Add eggs and beat well.
Add vanilla, mix well.
Add four, baking soda, baking powder, salt and mix well.
Add oats and chocolate chips.
Mix well.

Drop by spoonful on to cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for approx 10 minutes or until lightly browned (don't overcook or they will be hard).
