These are them!They are oatmeal cookies, sure to harden the arteries, sure to help with your sugar level, but for a treat about once a year, I say they are worth it!
Here's the recipe. I made two batches, one with raisins (about 2/3 cup) and the plain ones.
1/2 cup shortening (Crisco)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup oats (not the quick cook variety)
Cream shortening, add both sugars and the egg. Beat together.
Mix in the dry ingredients and add the vanilla.
Stir in the oats
Bake at 350* for 10-15 minutes on greased cookie sheets.
Bet you can't eat just one
When my last tray of cookies were in the oven I grabbed my bag of mini pretzels
I lined a small cookie sheet with aluminum foil, placed down 16 pretzels, put a Rolo right the centre of each one. I put that in a 350* oven for about 3 minutes and then took them out. Right away I put a pecan half on top of each one pushing down the Rolo to flatten it.
