Famous Oatmeal Cookies - #Recipe
I was hungry for some homemade cookies the other day and this is the first recipe I found in my recipe box. The recipe says it makes 5 dozen but I think it made a little over 3 dozen for me. Oh well, I have to make some more because they are gone already.
I added about 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and about a cup of mini chocolate chips also. If you are interested here is the recipe below. They are good with a cold glass of milk or a cup of hot tea (like I had)!
FAMOUS OATMEAL COOKIES
3/4 cup shortening (I used half margarine and half butter)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups oats, uncooked
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. soda
Beat together shortening, sugars, egg, water and vanilla until creamy. Add combined remaining ingredients; mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake in preheated moderate oven (350 degrees F.) 12 to 15 minutes. (For variety, add chopped nuts, raisins, chocolate chips or coconut).
Makes about 3 to 4 dozen cookies (average).
