Recipe for Oatmeal Drop Cookies

Oatmeal Drop Cookies

1 cup Shortening, soft
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk, sweet or sour (I used plain milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix shortening and sugars together.

Add eggs, milk and vanilla and mix.

After it is well mixed, add the oatmeal and mix.

Add dry ingredients, flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg to sifter. Add to mixture and beat until well mixed.

Add chopped nuts, raisins, chocolate chips, or coconut to the dough for variety. I made oatmeal raisin cookies here for the preparedness fair our ward had on Saturday.
Drop by teaspoon full onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
Mmmmmm yummy. One of the best recipes I have found for oatmeal cookies. I know you will love it too! Enjoy!
