1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar

In large bowl combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Cream in another bowl the shortening, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla and lastly add the eggs. Add oats. Fold flour mixture into wet mixture and add chocolate chips. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or till golden brown at 350 degrees
