Description

Chewy oatmeal cookies, spiced with cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger, and nutmeg. Great for winter holidays.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Shortening
  • ½ cups Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1-½ cup Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cloves
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Ground Ginger
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Allspice
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • 3 cups Dry Quick-cooking Oatmeal

Preparation

With a mixer, cream the shortening, butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat well.

In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg.

Stir dry ingredients into wet mixture, until just combined. Fold in the oatmeal.

You could also add any or all of the following: raisins, chocolate chips, nuts, dried cranberries, etc. Use your imagination!

My only suggestion for this recipe is DOUBLE IT; they won’t last! These cookies are wonderful, gooey and chewy as well as subtly spiced.

Delicious and oh, so many options. I would highly recommend making these, they have a little crispy edge but are still perfectly chewy like a good oatmeal cookie shoud be–perfection.
