the yummiest oatmeal cookies recipe

oatmeal cookies

Seth was kind enough to make dinner last night because my energy has been low lately but after dinner I thought I would treat him by making some oatmeal cookies. I have tried a few different recipes for oatmeal cookies but I have never been satisfied with any of them. I found a real simple one in a local recipe book (those kinds are my favorite). I think they turned out amazing! Seth loved them. Here is the recipe if you would like to try them yourself!

The yummiest oatmeal cookies

1 c. Shortening
1 c. Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Cinnamon
3 c. Quick Cooking Oatmeal
1 c. Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 c. Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg

Cream shortening, sugars, eggs, & vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, & nutmeg. Mix well. Add oatmeal. Drop by spoonfuls on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

Let me know if you try these. They are delicious!!
