  • In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and coffee liqueur. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the oats, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls, and place them 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.

  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before eating!

I have to say that this cookie recipe is the absolute best ever!!! I have tried several on allrecipes that were rated very highly and featured in the cookbook but none of them compare. They were too cakey and I was not impressed. I was hesitant to try this one after having bad experiences with the other ones that were rated highly but I am so glad I tried this recipe. The oatmeal and Kahlua definitely made the cookies. I only made a few changes. I doubled the recipe to make 48 cookies and used all shortening instead of butter. I also used half mini chocolate chips and half Ghiradelli milk chocolate chips. I cooked them for about 9 minutes and took them out when they were still gooey. YUM!! I brought them over to a friend's house and everyone there said they were the BEST cookies they had ever tasted. This was a great compliment from someone who makes homemade cookies all the time. I made half the batch and froze the rest of them for later. Read More

Everyone who's tasted these cookies say they are THE BEST chocolate chip cookies they've ever had. I baked mine on an insulated cookie sheet for only 8 or 9 minutes (at 375) and they came out perfect. I also used 1 cup of butter-flavored shortening instead of the margarine and shortening combination. The Kalua is the key! Read More

I always say the reason they are 5 star rating is because there are 5 people in my family. One star is for one person so i have done four stars beacause everyone likes them except Kyle who hates chocolate. My husband Ken daughter Kelly and other son Rick all think they are superb. Thank you all Ashley Read More

A great tasting cookie. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it wasn't a "pure" chocolate chip cookie. The oats gave it a different texture than I was looking for. I will definitley make this again though. Read More
