Excellent Chocolate Chip Cookies

In my recipe box from YEARS ago, is a recipe entitled
Excellent Chocolate Chip Cookies

Before The Husband went into the hospital last weekend,
we made this big batch of cookies.

Here is the ingredient list:
2 cups butter (I used 1 cup shortening and 1 cup butter)
2 cups sugar
2 cups packed brown sugar
4 eggs
4 cups flour
5 cups oatmeal, blended to a powder
1 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
2 t. soda
24 oz. chocolate chips
3 cups chopped walnuts, optional
The Husband helped blend the oatmeal
 Oatmeal before blending....
...and oatmeal after blending
Set the oatmeal aside.
Place the shortening and butter in mixing bowl.
Add the brown and white sugars...
and blend together well.
Begin adding the dry ingredients...
and then the chocolate chips and nuts.
This is one full bowl!
Use an ice cream scoop and drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 12 minutes.
With a hot cup of coffee, these cookies are amazingly delicious!
