Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 3/4 cup ground walnuts

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and maple flavoring. Combine the flour, oats and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, shape dough into 1/2-in.-wide logs. Cut into 2-in. pieces. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 325° for 15-18 minutes or until set and very lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  3. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and milk; stir until smooth. Dip one end of each cookie into chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Roll in walnuts. Place on waxed paper until set.
