Slice and Bake Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Slice and Bake Oatmeal Cookies      

I love these refrigerator cookies because I can make the dough freeze it or refrigerate and then my son can bake them anytime he and his friends want cookies. Works out great for both of us!

1 cup crisco ( I use butter flavor )
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1-1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

In mixing bowl, cream together Crisco, granulated sugar, and brown sugar till light and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each; add vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into creamed mixture.
Stir in oats and walnuts. Shape dough into two 8-inch rolls.
Wrap in waxed paper or clear plastic wrap. Chill thoroughly, about 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices.
Place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350F for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on rack.
