Oatmeal Chewies


Cream Together:

1 cup shortening

1 cup white sugar

1 cup Brown Sugar


2 beaten eggs

1tsp. vanilla

Combine to above:

1 1/2 cup flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. soda


3 cups quick oatmeal

1/2 cup chopped nuts

Add a little milk, not even 1/4 cup. Mix. Drop on greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 min. at 350, if you like chewy not crispy take them out a few min. early, just as they turn a light golden brown, this is how we like them, I also omitted the nuts because most my family doesn't like nuts, Id put the whole nut tree in but then Id have to eat them all myself, tempting but no, I'm trying to lose 20 not gain 30.

Serve warm with ice cream. ENJOY
