1/2 Cup shortening (I use butter flavor, but plain is fine too!)
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
3/4 Cup flour
3 Cups Oats
1 Teaspoon vanilla
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Cup nuts or chocolate chips (or half a cup of both)
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Mix dry ingredients together and then add in shortening and egg.
Drop one tablespoon per cookie on an ungreased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes.
