Mimi's Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies: (I don't know if this is the one Sue uses or not, but this is the one Mom put in the Eastview Cookbook and the one she gave me. 1 C. Brown Sugar 1 C. Granulated Sugar 1 C. Shortening 2 Eggs, well beaten 1 tsp. Vanilla 11/2 C. Flour 1 tsp. Soda 1 tsp. Salt 3 C. Quick Oats 1 C. Chopped Pecans. Cream sugars and shortening together. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add flour, salt, soda, oatmeal and nuts; mix well. Form into rolls, wrap in waxed paper. Chill Thoroughly. Slice 1/4 inch thick. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet @ 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes 5 dozen. NOTE: When I have been in a hurry, I would leave in the bowl, cover with saran and let it chill in the fridge for about one hour and then dip it out. The cookies don't turn out as perfect, but they are still good. You just don't want the batter to dry to much, that is why they say wrap them in waxed paper.

I hope they turned out tasting as good as they look.
