The Best Oatmeal Cookies.....

(Image courtesy of

Growing up, we had this very sweet neighbor that lived next door.  She made wonderful Oatmeal Cookies.  When we moved out of state, my mother secured the recipe...and it has been a family favorite ever since.  I would like to share, in my humble opinion, the very best Oatmeal Cookie Ann Potter.  You really need to try these...they are delish!

Ann Potter's Oatmeal Cookies

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Soda
3/4 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Shortening
1 1/2 C flour
2 Eggs
2 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Mix and bake at 350 to 375 de3grees for 10-15 minutes.  A single batch makes about 6 dozen cookies.  When doubling the recipe, add about 1/2 to 3/4 Cup additional Flour.
