Caramel Apple Cookies

contributed by Christine Day
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening, butter flavor works best!
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
… 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
3 cups old-fashioned (not quick) oats
1 cup chopped dried apples
1 1/2 cup caramel bits

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, cream your butter, shortening, and both sugars together.  Add your eggs and vanilla and mix well.  In another bowl, mix together your flour, baking soda and cinnamon.  Add the flour mixture to your butter mixture, mixing well.  Stir in your oats, apple pieces and caramel bits.  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Let cookies cool for 2-3 minutes on parchment paper before removing cookies to a cooling rack
