Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Some people stay away from cookies with oatmeal in them because they think a healthy ingredient is going to make the cookies not as delicious as those cookies without them.

First, combine the butter, white sugar, brown sugar and shortening together in a mixer. Then, add in the eggs and vanilla. While you are mixing together these ingredients together in a separate bowl mix together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Then, combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients slowly and until well incorporated.
