  • 1 1/2 cup (192g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. allspice
  • 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cup whole oats
  • 1 1/2 cup Cherry flavored baking morsels
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup (95g) shortening
  • 1/4 cup (57g) unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°F degrees. Prepare 2 baking pans by lining them with parchment paper.
  • In medium bowl sit flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and cocoa. 
  • 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. 
  • Add in eggs one at a time. Mix on medium for 1-2 minutes and make sure ingredients are well combined.
  • Turn mixer to low and add flour ingredients to wet mixture and mix until just combined. Remove bowl from mixer. Add in oats and cherry morsels and finish mixing together by hand.
  • 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.
