Growing up we always had a go-to recipe that we used for oatmeal cookies. It is a family favorite that we make all the time. It is so easy and my favorite thing is that there isn’t much clean up! Who doesn’t love that? 🙂
1 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 well-beaten eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
3 cups quick oats
Mix together the shortening and sugars; add well-beaten eggs and vanilla. Next, add the dry ingredients.
Bake at 350 F. Bake for 14 minutes or to taste.
For a different twist you can add chocolate, butterscotch or peanut butter chips. Raisins also work really well in this recipe. My personal favorite is adding the chocolate chips! These go great with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk.
Enjoy this recipe and have a great day!
