Okay so it's been forever since I posted here. Oops!

We made these cookies today and they were so good that I decided this recipe is definitely worth sharing.

They don't really have a name, so come up with something creative before you share them with people. Something that sounds really impressive.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup Heath toffee chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl cream shortening, butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Add eggs and mix thoroughly.
Combine the baking soda, salt and flour and stir into creamed mixture
Add oatmeal and chips and stir until well blended.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.

You'll end up with about 7 dozen sweet and delicious cookies. You can share a dozen or two with family if you'd like. I like to keep the majority for myself. It keeps my winter layer of blubber nice and thick. I like to be warm.
