My favorite oatmeal cookie recipe
1 c. shortening
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
and add one beaten egg. Now sift together
1-1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
and add it to the first mixture. Then add
1-1/2 c. quick rolled oats
3/4 c. finely crushed walnuts or pecans
1 tsp. vanilla
Chill it for an hour. Then put walnut-sized pieces on a greased cookie sheet. Butter the bottom of a small glass, dip it in granulated sugar, and flatten out the little pieces. Just keep doing this…you don’t need to re-butter the glass bottoms, just re-sugar it each time. Then bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Note: Sometimes I like to add cinnamon to the granulated sugar for the dipping portion.
