Oatmeal Cookies

I know most of us are probably not interested in rich sweets now, after making it thru the holidays. The reason I like this cookie recipe is because it isn’t overly sweet. When I want to munch on something that’s just a little bit sweet and not chocolate, these cookies are great, and very easy to make.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Here’s the recipe

1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup shortening (not oil)
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup rolled oats (quick oats)
2/3 cup buttermilk

This recipe can be doubled. Mix ingredients in a bowl.

Drop spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes. You can cut back the cooking time to 7 or 8 minutesĀ if you want softer cookies.

I lay them out on newspaper to cool, cause that’s what Mama always does. You could place them on cooling racks.

Try not to eat them all in one sitting.

Share with the family.

Or with friends.

Oh, go ahead and eat ’em all. They’re so good.
