How to Make Aunt Betty's Oatmeal Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream crisco, sugars together. Add eggs. Sift flour with salt, soda and baking powder. Add sifted items to creamed mixture. Add. . .water, vanilla, oatmeal, nuts, and optional chocolate chips. Mix together. Cover and put in refrigerator for 8 to 10 hours. Use ice cream scoop to make medium large cookies (mixture should be cold as the cold keeps cookie from spreading thin during cooking)and place on parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes (depending on size of cookie). Allow to rest on cookie sheet until set and then transfer to cookie rack to stay until completely cooled.
  2. Batter can be kept covered in refrigerated and use as much as you need at different times. Also, good to bake all of recipe and put into freezer bags and freeze cooked cookies. But I like to keep batter in fridge and use as I need them - makes house smell wonderful and you have as many freshly baked cookies needed at that time.
