1 teaspoon

baking soda
1 cup

brown sugar
1 cup

2 cups

rolled oats
1/4 teaspoons

1 cup

1/2 cup

1 teaspoon

vanilla extract
1/4 cup



  1. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in water and vanilla.

  2. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Fold in oats.

  3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets.

  4. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to stand 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.

Wine Pairing :

  • cream sherry
  • madeira
  • prosecco

Cookies works really well with Cream Sherry, Madeira, and Prosecco. Sweet bubbly Prosecco doesn't overwhelm simple sugar or shortbread cookies, a sweet cream sherry complements spiced cookies, and madeira's nutty notes match cookies with nuts perfectly.
