Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

In a large mixing bowl like Kitchen Aid put:

1 cup of Crisco
1 cup of white sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
2 or 3 teaspoons of vanilla
2 large eggs

Beat good then add:

1 1/2 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
3 cups of old fashioned oats (not quick cooking oats)
2 or 3 teaspoons of vanilla

Mix with mixer, then add:
4 cups of pecan halves (not cut up) you can toast them and they are better.

Mix good then put them out on a baking sheet, I use parchment paper. Put a tablespoon or so for a cookie, makes a nice big one, that amount of pecans is important and is what makes the cookie good.

Cook until top and bottom are brown at 300 degrees!!!!

Yum !!!

Variations

For wonderful different peanut butter cookie use the basic recipe but add one cup of peanut butter any kind and a cup of chopped toasted pecans.
Put 12 oz. of chocolate chips for a great cookie.
The coconut apricot put 2 cups of coconut in the bag and cut up an 8 oz. package of dried apricots.
