Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Just a yummy cookie to post up for your Monday morning enjoyment.

 Kind of an odd Monday for me.  I almost never work Mondays but today I am.  Feels so strange, and I'll miss the beginning of Dancing With the Stars.  

I'll just eat another cookie and try not to whine about it.

These were fudgey and yummy. I always enjoy the combination of chocolate and oatmeal.  I think if I made them again I would add a touch more sugar.  
Here's the recipe as found at Cheat Day Cafe:

1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/3 c. cocoa powder
1 1/4 c. sugar
1 egg beaten well
1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1/3 c. shortening - melted
1/3 c. butter - room temp
2 c. oatmeal 

Sift together first 5 ingredients. Combine the egg, milk and vanilla and add cooled shortening and butter. Mix thoroughly with dry ingredients. Stir in rolled oatmeal. Drop by spoonfuls onto parchment paper or sprayed cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 for 8 min.
