Double Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1/4 c shortening
3/4 c granulated sugar
3/4 c firmly packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 t vanilla extract
2 1/3 c all-purpose flour
1 t salt
1/4 t salt
1 2/3 c (an 11oz pkg) of peanut butter and milk chocolate chips
2 c (1pgk) semi-sweet chips
1/2 c uncooked regular oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted (optional - sometimes I just do a whole cup of the oats)

Beat butter and shortening at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until blended. Add eggs and 1 t vanilla, beating until blended.

Combine flour, soda and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in chips, oats and nuts.
