Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

Makes about 2-1/2 dozen

1 cup flour
1 cup shortening (Crisco)
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
3 tbl. water
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
3-1/2 cups quick cooking oats, uncooked

Preheat oven to 375 deg. Grease large cookie sheets.
Into large bowl, measure all ingredients except oats. With mixer on low speed, beat until well blended, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula. With wooden spoon, stir in oats until well mixed.
Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls about 2 apart onto cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until barely golden. With spatula, carefully remove cookies to wire racks to cool. Store in tightly covered container.

Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out, but I can usually shut her up with cookies!
