Oatmeal Date Cookies
3 cups quick oatmeal
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup shortening
Mix as for pastry - moisten with 1/3 cup water, 1 teaspoon soda stirred in, soft enough to roll..
Roll them out fairly thin and use a cookie cutter to cut circles. (Or get more efficient and get a hexagonal cookie cutter)
Chopped dates, a bit of sugar, mixed with a little water to soften. Sometimes add a little lemon juice for a zippier flavor. Heat it up on the stove. Spread the filling into the cookies while they're still warm.
These get even better in a day or so as they get softer. If they last that long, that is.
