Grammy Peggy’s Oatmeal Cookies

Grammy Peggy's Oatmeal Cookies

This is my grandmother’s recipe and makes a thin, light oatmeal cookie – chewy right from the oven or crispy after they cool. This recipe has ruined me. I am simply unable to enjoy other oatmeal cookies!

Grammy Peggy’s Oatmeal Cookies 

  • 1 c all-purpose flour
  • ½ c packed light brown sugar
  • ½ c sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • ½ c shortening
  • ¾ c Old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ t kosher salt
  • ½ t baking powder
  • ½ t baking soda

Preheat oven to 375F.

In one mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, sugar, egg, vanilla, and shortening. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients – the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir. Add the oats. Drop by 1-inch rounds onto baking sheets. Cook about 12 min or until lightly golden around the edges. Remove from the oven and transfer the cookies immediately to a rack to cool. Makes ~20 cookies.
