Ice is definitely not my friend after a broken wrist just before Thanksgiving. Think I will getting out my re-moveable cast to use in the morning.
Good day to stay in – and bake my favorite oatmeal cookies….
This is the recipe my Mom always made for us growing up
1 1/2 C Crisco
1 Cup white sugar
2 Cups brown sugar
1/2 Cup water
2 tsp vanilla
Combine these six ingredients and mix well
3 1/2 Cups flour
2 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
Mix the dry ingredients in with the wet, mix well
Fold in 2 Cups of old-fashioned oatmeal – Quaker Oats
Drop by tsp on ungreased cookie sheet – Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes depending on oven. I would check after 9 – 10 minutes to be safe! (that is for Carol's benefit)
Mom would bake half the batter as is then add a cup of chocolate chips to the batter and bake the rest. With 10 kids she had to try and appease everyone!
The perfect thin, chewy cookie…..
