Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies have been in my family for years. I suppose that is the reason that they're made with...shortening. Yes, I'm using the white greasy stuff in these cookies, and you know what, they are amazing! So go on, cheat a little on your diet and make these. You'll love them!

This dough can be saved in the fridge for a week or so. Oatmeal cookies for a week!!


1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1.5 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
3 cups oatmeal

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream the sugar and shortening together with a hand-held mixer. Add the eggs and vanill and mix well. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Slowly add the dry to the wet mixture and mix well. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
