This is my Mom’s Oatmeal Cookie recipe I used yesterday. She also has another recipe called “Famous Oatmeal Cookies” which I’ll try later. Also want to make the traditional Oatmeal Raisin Cookies at some point. For this recipe I omitted nuts and used a 100g (7 ounce) packet of chocolate chips.
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup shortening
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup nut meats (optional)
1 small pkg of chocolate chips (optional)
Sift flour, measure, then sift again with soda and salt
Cream shortening with sugar, beat in egg, mix in vanilla.
Stir in dry ingredients, then add oats, nuts, chips.
Drop by teaspoonfull on cookie sheet in 350 degree oven 10-12 minutes.
