Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Found this recipe in one of my cookbooks last year and I have been making them like crazy ever since! It makes a ton of cookies, which are nice to freeze or keep in the cookie jar! They are soft and yummy... The daycare kids and I whipped up a batch this morning and it smells delicious throughout my house!

Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

2 1/2 cups shortening
5 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/3 cup molasses
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 3/4 quick cooking oats
4 1/3 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in molasses and vanilla. Combine the remaining ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture.

Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until eges are firm. Remove to wire racks to cool.
