Oatmeal Refigerator Cookies

This is my family's recipe for oatmeal cookies,
which to date is still my favorite.
Refrigerator is is the name for you have to refrigerate the dough.
Kooky name for them I must admit, but it helps it stand out
amongst other oatmeal cookie recipes in my recipe box.

1 c. Shortening or butter (shortening makes a chewier cookie,
butter makes a crisper but more flavorful cookie)
1 c. White sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 c. rolled oats
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. sifted flour

Mix all ingrdients together and shape into a long roll.
Wrap in plastic or wax paper and chill for a few hours.
Slice in to 1/8" slices and place slices on a greased
cookie sheet. Bake 8 - 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
Yields: 5 dozen
