Yummerrific Oatmeal Cookies

Yummerrific Oatmeal Cookies
From: FairyChatMom

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheets - cooking spray works fine.

3/4 cup shortening (I use butter, but have used veg. shortening)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar

Cream the above together, then add:
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Blend well. Then sift together:
1 cup flour (white or whole wheat)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda

Add to wet mixture and mix well. Then stir in
3 cups quick oats
raisins, chocolate chips, or chopped nuts are optional and to taste.

Drop by spoonsful on greased cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool approx 3 minutes before removing to cooling rack.

This will make 4-6 dozen depending on how big a glop of dough you use. Mine are a bit bigger than a walnut and I get 4 dozen 3" cookies. And if you have a big enough bowl, this is best doubled, 'cause they're good and they won't last long!
