Cookies for Father

The next stop for spring vacation was Meedle's apartment in New Bedford, MA. She had dictated an extremely long list of items for me to bring, and I packed and packed and packed. When I'd finished, I realized I had exactly one half hour before Mother came home to say goodbye, so I decided to make these cookies for Fath. Oatmeal raisin are one of his favorites, but we didn't have any raisins, so I made this variation.

1/3 c. white sugar
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
1/4 c. butter (softened)
1/4 c. shortening
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. flour

1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1/2 c. white chocolate chips

In the original recipe, only 1/2 cup of raisins were required, so these cookies came out of the oven with a high percentage of add-ins, but I doubt anyone's going to complain.
