Happy President's Day! I LOVE Monday Holidays, don't you? One more day to sleep-in, and enjoy the kiddos being home. When my kids are out of school, we usually bake something fun. Unfortunately, I haven't been to the grocery store all week, so we needed to bake something with the ingredients we had on hand.
Cue...Oatmeal Cookie Recipe...
1 Cup Shortening
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour, scooped and leveled
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. hot water
1 1/2 Cups quick rolled oats ( I substituted blueberry flavor oats here)
Cream shortening, add sugars and cream until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla:
Add flour and salt, then add soda that's been dissolved in hot water; blend. Stir in (blueberry)rolled oats:
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto parchment lined cookie sheet/ungreased cookie sheet about 1.5 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes or until barely browned and still a little puffy.
Remove to wire rack to cool.
These cookies were so simple to make, and yummy! Crispy-ish on the outside, chewy on the inside.
