Oatmeal Icebox Cookies

Oatmeal Icebox Cookies
I made the following recipe twice last week. My boys just love this recipe. My secret ingredient is pumpkin pie spice,  click here 

Oatmeal Icebox Cookies

1 cup of butter
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon .... I substitute and use my pumpkin spice 1/2 teaspoon
3 cups cooking oats
1/2 cup pecans or chocolate chips or raisins

Beat together shortening and sugars until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla, beating well.
Mix remaining ingredients.
Shape into 3 rolls about 2 inches in diameter - wrap in wax paper 
Chill for 2 hours
After the two hours, slice the cookies 1/4 inch thick
 Set on to your cookie sheets
Bake at 350 degrees - 9 to 10 minutes

My first batch I added raisins. The second batch I added chocolate chips. This week my husband is asking for me to add pecans. Looks like I will baking up some more Oatmeal Icebox Cookies this week.

Enjoy!
