Special Delivery

The magic of these cookies is that they are so flexible. They can be Butterscotch Chip Oatmeal, or Cowboy Cookies or Oatmeal Raisin... the possibilities are endless.

I did Date Cherry Almond Chocolate Chip Oatmeal for Lisa and Lubo—some love and cookies sent their way to celebrate Anna's arrival.

Magic Oatmeal Cookies

1 c. butter-flavored Crisco
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. rolled oats
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 c. of add-ins (
chopped nuts and/or dried fruit, chocolate or other chips, coconut, etc.)
Sprinkles of whatever spice goes with your add-ins

Cream shortening and sugar, add eggs and vanilla, then oats. Stir in all additional dry ingredients until combined, then stir in add-ins. Drop onto cookie sheets and bake for 8-10 mins. at 375-degrees F.
