Oatmeal Cookies -1

Author/Submitted by: "Judy A. Moreth" <VWMOREJ@VCCSCENT.BITNET>
Servings: 48
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1  Cup  Brown Sugar
1  Cup  Shortening
2    Eggs
1/2  Cup  Milk
3/4  Teaspoon  Baking Soda
2  Cups  Flour
1/2  Teaspoon  Salt
1  Teaspoon  Cinnamon
1  Teaspoon  Baking Powder
2  Cups  Rolled Oats
1  Teaspoon  Vanilla

Cream sugar and shortening. Add alternately beaten eggs with milk and dry ingredients, sifted together. Add oatmeal and vanilla and drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Yield: 48 We always added a bag of chocolate chips or raisins or nuts or some combination.

This is the recipe my grandmother always made. It's softer than a lot of oatmeal cookies, and to me, no other recipe ever measured up. This came from the Modern Priscilla Cookbook, which was published in the 1890s. I wish I still had it.
