Oatmeal Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies

My mom used to make these for us when we were kids.  Her mom used to make them for her.  Now I make them for my kids.  Gotta love the multi-generational recipes.  (My mom was a bit of a health nut and this is one cookie she would let us eat for breakfast)  Recipe below is just as it is in my grandma's recipe box.  Below the recipe I'll put my twist to it.

1 C sugar
1 C molasses
1 1/2 C melted shortening
4 eggs well beaten
1/2 C sweet milk
4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp cloves
2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 C flour
4 C quick oats
2 C chocolate chips

Mix in order given sift in flour and spices  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 mins.

**I use melted margarine, regular milk (not even sure what sweet milk is)  2 tsp cinnamon and 4 tsp all spice (I don't keep cloves around the house, so that's why the switch)  I also bake for 12 minutes because I like them a little more done.  Makes 5 dozen
