Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

I found this recipe on the web. The cookies turned out good. I tried it at 10 minutes and the cookies were gooey. I tried it at 15 minutes and they were way over. At 12 they were a little bit better.

Also, I used pecans instead of walnuts.

Now that I think about it, I think the cookies I made were too big. I used a #12 ice cream scoop. Maybe I’ll get a set of smaller ice cream scoopers this year for Christmas.

Grandma’s Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs well beaten
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups oats (we use Quaker Quick or Old Fashioned. Do NOT use instant.)
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts (use 1/2 cup if using raisins)
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)

Method

  1. Cream shortening and sugars, add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  2. Sift flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Add to first mixture and mix well. Add raisins (if using) and nuts. Add oats last.
  3. Spoon out by rounded tablespoonfuls on to greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350°F. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
