Oatmeal Cookies

I’m not sure we’ve had a recipe on Monday for a while, but I found one I wanted to share. I’ve been searching for good oatmeal cookies and my mother recently unearthed a family recipe that we’re all raving about, so I’m posting it here.

Aunt Vera’s Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream shortening and sugar, add beaten eggs. Add dry ingredients and lastly add oatmeal. Mix together. Drop by teaspoon on greased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.

This isn’t what I should be posting when I’m trying to lose weight, but sometimes, it’s worth the calories. Yum!
