Katrina’s Mom's Good Oatmeal Cookies
  • 3/4 cup shortening (I used Spectrum non-hydrogenated)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (4.5 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  1. Beat first 6 ingredients (shortening through vanilla) together in a mixing bowl. Combine flour, salt, cinnamon and soda and sift (I didn't sift). Stir dry ingredients into creamed mixture. Stir in oats. Grease cookie sheets, although parchment probably takes care of that. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls spacing 2 inches apart and bake at 350 F for 12-15 min.
Yield is approximate.
