These cookies are awesome. You must make them. If you like cherry dipped cones from DQ then these Cherry Oatmeal Cookies are going to be your new go-to cookies!
In your stand mixer (or using a hand-held mixer) on medium speed, cream together the shortening, butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla for about 2-3 minutes.
These cookies work best when using parchment paper on your baking sheet. I made each cookie about 2 tablespoons big and placed each spoonful about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 9-11 minutes and then place slightly cooled cookies on a cooling rack.
