Toffee Apple Oatmeal cookies

I whipped these up today.  I adapted another oatmeal and cereal cookie recipe to fit what I had in my cupboard.

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup shortening, room temperature
2 cups unpacked brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cups Apple Cinnamon Cheerios
1 cup toffee chips (like Skor chips)

Preheat oven to 350 F, line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Cream together fats and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.  Mix flour with baking soda and salt.  Blend into sugar mixture.  Stir in oats.  Carefully stir in cereal and toffee chips (you don't want to break the cereal up too much)

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets and bake 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.  Cool on racks and devour with a big glass of milk, hot tea or coffee.

Yield:  approx 3 - 4 dozen cookies

**I am going to try adding chopped dried apples to my next batch to get even more apple flavour into the cookies**
