Why I Love This Recipe

This one is my Mom's. I remember making these for her when I was barely tall enough to reach the counter.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 egg - well beaten
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or ½ tsp lemon extract
½ cup flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup shortening
1 cup quick-cooking oats
½ cup nuts - chopped


Combine egg, sugars and extract. Beat well. Add dry ingredients, beating well. Stir in shortening, oats and nuts.

Chill dough 1 hour. Spread onto greased cookie sheet, leaving ½ inch around edges.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Cut into squares before cooling.
