Description

These are not your normal chewy cookies. Instead, they are light, airy, and crispy.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Vegetable Shortening
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract (not Imitation)
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1-¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1-½ cup Oatmeal
  • 1-½ cup Toasted Pecans Or Walnuts

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream the shortening and sugars together until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, and baking soda. Gradually add the dry mix to the wet, a little at a time, until thoroughly incorporated.

Add the oatmeal and nuts.

Scoop the dough into balls about the size of a walnut (2 to 3 tablespoonfuls—I use a mini ice cream scoop). Place on an ungreased cookie sheet (I line mine with parchment paper) and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until they are golden brown.

After they are baked, transfer them to a cooling rack.

* If you do not want to bake all of yours at one time, these cookies work well “flash frozen.” If frozen, add another minute or two to the cooking time.

These were wonderful. I added a grated apple to the dough for a little something extra.

I like these cookies, and they are crispy as the recipe promises. Next time, I will use 3/4 cup of white sugar. They are a too sweet as is.
