Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

In my search to find the perfect oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, I conjured up these cookies! I call them the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies. There is just something delicious about adding the oats to a chocolate chip pecan cookie that makes them irresistible. I make mine super big (don't use the tablespoon cookie scoop) and they always disappear like hot cakes. 

3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
2 cups shortening
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 ½ cups white sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp hot water
1 ½ cup chopped pecans
2 large packages of choc chips
2 tsp vanilla
4 cups regular (non instant) oats

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl cream shortening  and sugar. Continue beating while you add the eggs. Once combined add the water and dry ingredients. Add vanilla and chocolate chips. Mix in the oatmeal gradually. Stir until well combined. Bake for 12 minutes (or until golden brown on edges) at 350 degrees.
