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 (Do NOT use instant oats.)
1.Cream shortening and sugars, add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
2. Sift flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon, I hate cinnamon so I added a little less than a spoonful. Add to first mixture and mix well, add oats.
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.
This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies or so, I made these for Ostara and they were a huge hit, I added some Green Coloured Runes with Icing Gel..
