Here's grandma's recipe for oatmeal cookies...they are delicious and keep well.
1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1-1/4 cups flour
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup nuts, chopped
1 cup raisins
Cream together shortening and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Add remaining ingredients, saving raisins and nuts till last. Drop spoonfuls on sprayed baking sheet and bake in preheated 350 degree oven until lightly browned. Makes a big batch.
My Aunt Velma's Soft Puffy Sugar Cookie recipe is on here someplace. I'll see if I can find them.
