These were very tasty, however they are more chocolate chip cookies with some oats thrown in than oatmeal cookies. I made them as written, just slightly less shortening (which was good because even with a little less they were quite oily), and slightly fewer chocolate chips (again good because even with the amount I added, about one and a quarter cups, the chocolate completely overwhelmed the oatmeal). I did add some vanilla. Although I prefer the taste of butter, in this recipe using shortening didn't diminish the flavor. I baked on parchment paper which prevented the cookies from becoming as flat as some reviewers have complained of. While these were not the oatmeal cookies I'd been hoping for, they were delicious cookies nonetheless.
