Recipe by Trixyinaz

Do you love oatmeal cookies? This is the recipe for you. For a while there, my dad was asking me to make these cookies for him every other week. I swear he ate 1/2 the cookies in one night!!! Got this recipe from an very old cookbook that I found. Can't remember the name of it, but when I get home, I'll find out and add it to the comments. Enjoy!

These were great. I made both with and without walnuts. I liked them a little better with the nuts. It has quite a few items, but isn't really hard, and if you already have most of the stuff, it's no big deal. They were gone very quickly!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Set aside.
  4. If you don't have a sifter, put all these ingredients into a bowl and"slice" through it with a knife several times and in all directions.
  5. Cream together shortening and sugars until light and fluffy.
  6. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well.
  7. Blend in vanilla.
  8. Gradually add dry ingredients to creamed mixture.
  9. Stir in oats.
  10. If you want to add walnuts, stir them into mixture along with the oats.
  11. I usually use about 2 cups of nuts (I'm a nut FREAK).
  12. Shape into balls (I use a small melon ball scoop) and place on a greased cooking sheet.
  13. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
  14. Makes about 4 dozen depending on the size cookie you make.
