Oatmeal Sugar Cookies

What a great new recipe!  I got this recipe a while back from my friend Kathy.  She said they are her daughter's favorites.  I didn't try them right away as I am such a chocolate nut.....I usually want chocolate in my oatmeal cookies.  I decided to to give them a try recently when my mom was here.  I made them for a volleyball tournament.  WE LOVED THEM!  The team loved them.  The cookies have a great texture...soft but crunchy.  I do still think they would be yummy with chocolate chips and/or chopped pecans but they were also perfect as is.  Definitely add this cookie recipe to your collection.

Oatmeal Sugar Cookies

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups oatmeal

Cream sugars with shortening.  Add eggs.  Sift baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon and flour together.  Combine dry ingredients with creamed mixture.  Stir in oatmeal - Add vanilla.  Form dough into balls the size of walnuts and roll into granulated sugar.  Bake at 350 on a greased cookie sheet until light brown.  Do Not Overbake - cook only about 8 minutes.
