Oatmeal Sugar Cookies
1 cup shortening
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups quick oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, cream shortening
and the white and brown sugars together, then add eggs. Combine dry
ingredients with the creamed mixture. Stir in vanilla and
oatmeal. Chill dough if necessary. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, dip
into granulated sugar and drop onto greased cookie sheet, sugar-side up. Bake
at 350 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes. Do not over bake. Cookies will firm as they cool.
Yield: 5 dozen cookies.
This is a delicious twist to the traditional sugar cookie recipe.
