Oatmeal Cookies

As a request I thought I would share my oatmeal cookie recipe with everyone. It is the one I grew up with that my aunts made all the time.
As a special treat they would often roll them a bit thinner and made a fudge frosting to go between as well. I only do this when I have a whole lot of time on my hands(so my family hardly never get them this way hehe!)


1cup of brown sugar
1cup of shortening
1 egg
1/2 cup cold milk
1tsp. vanilla
1tsp salt
2 cups of oatmeal
2 cups of flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
start by leaving your oatmeal shortening milk and egg sit for 10 mins. then add remaining ing.
my aunt always said (and I have this written right on my recipe card) to add more flour if sticky. I usually always have to.

I roll mine out a smig less then 1/2 inch thick and cut them out with a crimped cookie cutter.
I sprinkle a little sugar on them before they go in to the oven.

I bake them in a 350 degree oven for about 15 to 20 mins. or until they start to turn golden brown (my oven is not very hot so I just watch them.)


Filling for oatmeal fudge filled cookies

1cup of brown sugar
1/4cup cream
2Tbsp butter
boil together 2-3 min. Beat well add sifted icing sugar until stiff
spread thin layer between 2 cooked cookies and enjoy
