List of Ingredients
1 cup Crisco all-vegetable shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups oatmeal
1 teaspoon vanilla
Using an electric mixer, cream the sugar, brown sugar, and Crisco until fluffy. Next, add eggs and beat well. (Mixture should be very fluffy.) Then, gradually add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until no trace of flour remains.
Add oatmeal and vanilla and blend well. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes.
Makes about 3 1/2 dozen large cookies.
If you prefer to slice and bake, chill the dough and roll into 2-inch logs in plastic wrap. After rolling into logs, chill several hours then slice 1/4-inch-thick, and bake at 375 degrees F for about 8 minutes.
