Versatile Cookie Mix

2 cup rolled oats
2 cup crispy rice cereal
4 cup flour
1 (10 oz) pkg chocolate chips
1 (10 - 12 oz) pkg vanilla chips

Mix all ingredients together until well blended. Place 2 cups mixture into each of 6 freezer bags, and refrigerate. To make cookies, mix 1 bag (or 2 cups) cookie mix, 1 egg and 1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening in bowl until well-blended. Shape dough into balls (about the size of walnuts) and place on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. 1 pkg mix makes about 24 to 36 cookies.
