Cream the shortening, brown sugar and sugar together and add the eggs. Dissolve the baking soda in hot water, and add the salt and vanilla. Combine the two mixtures together. Stir in the flour and add the oatmeal and chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

I just made oatmeal cookies like these, but I also add Butterscotch pieces with the chocolate pieces ,shredded coconut, a few chopped walnuts, and raisins, also threw a few cranraisins, I use about a little handful each, These are GOOD! I make enough to give away. If not, I will finish them, and that I really don't need. That's about 3 1/2 doz. (12/06/2008)
