¾ cup butter
¼ cup shortening
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 2/3 cup white chocolate chip morsels
1 2/3 cup milk chocolate morsels
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 ½ cups uncooked regular oats
½ cup chopped pecans
Beat butter and shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy, gradually add sugars, beat until blended. Add eggs and 1 tsp vanilla. Beating until well blended.
Combine flour, soda, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture. Stir in morsels, oats and pecans.
Chill dough for ½ hour and drop by ¼ cupfuls onto lightly greased baking sheet. Or use SILPATS on baking sheet like I do.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden.
Remove to wire rack and cool.
*High altitude cowboys: I adapted this for the elevation to: 320 in a convection oven (365 in a regular) and use ¼ less baking soda than the recipe instructions above.
