These cookies are so good. Sort of like oatmeal cookies, only better. They disappear fast!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream shortening and white sugar together.
  2. Add eggs and remaining ingredients.
  3. This will be real thick and I had to use my hands to mix it well.
  4. Take about a heaping tablespoon (or more if you want larger cookies) and roll into a ball in place on cookie sheeet.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees until brown.
  6. Let cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet.
  7. You can also add coconut or chocolate chips if desired.
  8. Personally, I like them without them.

Great cookies! I used all purpose flour, butter, and omitted the nuts. I baked them for 10 minutes and they were golden and delicious. My friends loved 'em!
