Oatmeal Cookies

I don't have a photo of these cookies because after I made them I sat down and ate every single one of them. Really I have just become terrible at taking the pictures of food. Okay so this is Nikki's recipe. It is more like a chocolate chip cookie consistency but with oats instead of chips if that makes sense. This was the best oatmeal cookie I have ever eaten. I asked Jamon if he loved them as much as I did and he said "they were a little too sweet for me." I just stared at him for about five minutes while all the mean cruel things that came into my mind about this comment passed. Then I simply said, "in all my thirty years I have never ever tasted anything I thought was too sweet and I can't wait until I do so that I can eat so much of it that I want to puke and then I will fill the tub up with it and bathe in it". And that's what I have to say about that. Here is the recipe. I do hope you will try it.


1 c shortening
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 overflowing tsp salt
3 c oatmeal (i use quick oats)
1 tsp vanilla

cream shortening & sugars. mix in eggs & vanilla. sift flour, soda and salt together. fold flour mix into wet ingredients. stir in oats. bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes.
