Oatmeal Refrigerator Cookies

These oatmeal cookies have great flavor and are soft and chewie.  Forming the dough in a log shape and wrapping it in plastic wrap and refrigerating it allows you to cut off what you need to make cookies and bake a panful, refrigerating the rest of the log, so you can have fresh baked cookies any time you wish.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup shortening (Crisco)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups quick cooking oatmeal

Cream together sugars and shortening.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.  Combine flour, soda, and salt, add to sugar mixture and mix well, until all is combined.  Stir in the oatmeal.  Form into a log on plastic wrap, the diameter you wish your cookie be.  Put the dough in the refrigerator.  When you want to bake the cookies, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Unroll the plastic and cut off about 3/4 inch and put them on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until the edges start to get golden brown.  Remove the cookies from the oven and leave them on the cookie sheet for a couple minutes then remove them from the pan and put on a cooling rack.  Let them cool…  if you can.
