Super Good Oatmeal Cookies

A handful of these and a glass of milk = happy kids.

Another recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Homemade Cookie Cook Book, dubbed by my mother to be "super good."

Super Good Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1/4 cup chopped walnuts - optional

Stir together first 6 ingredients.  Add shortening, egg, and vanilla; beat well.  Stir in oats and nuts.  Drop by small teaspoon onto cookie sheet.  I used my yeast spoon which is 2 1/4 teaspoons.  Can also be rolled into balls and smashed with a glass dipped in sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
