CHUCK'S D.F.C.C.C. 1994 (Darn Fine Chocolate Chip Cookies 1994) 
(1994 Christmas gift to family & friends) 

Cream together:

 1 cup butter flavored Crisco 2 tbsp. water

1 cup white sugar 1 packed cup brown sugar

Add & cream:  2 eggs 1 tsp. vanilla 

Take 2 cups of oatmeal - put small amounts in a blender; blend until it turns to powder - set aside

Mix:                 Oatmeal 2 cups flour

tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda 

Combine dry ingredients with creamed ingredients. 

Add 1 12-oz bag of chocolate chips . . . mix in 

Finely grate a 4-oz plain Hershey chocolate bar into the dough . . . mix in. 

Make tablespoon size cookies, roll into balls between hands, put on an ungreased cookie sheet (leave about 1.6453" between the balls) in a 375-degree oven for 10-12 minutes (they are a little soft when they come out of the oven . . . so must cool on cookie sheet for 7 - 8 minutes before being removed to a wire rack) 

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.  Don't be clever and use butter instead of the butter flavored Crisco.  While baking the cookies I suggest a simple Chablis, when eating the cookies (either warm or room temperature) chilled cow juice is usually the beverage of choice.
