Sailor's Salty Oatmeal Cookies

What you need: 

1 cup shortening (I use Soy Garden)
1 cup sugar
substitute for 1 egg (I combine 1 tablespoon ground flax with 3 tablespoon water)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
plus extra salt and sugar

What you do: 

Ahoy! I went to DC a few years ago and saw the most delicious-looking "Salty Oatmeal Cookies" for sale in a tea shop. Ok, so I couldn't actually try them, but I am positive that these vegan ones are better!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cream together shortening, sugar, vanilla and egg substitute. In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Combine both mixtures. Fold in the oats.
Use a teaspoon to drop cookies onto baking sheets. Be sure to flatten them! Then sprinkle with extra salt and sugar to taste.
Bake 6-8 minutes, until they begin to become golden.
Don't let your mateys get too many o' these- they're too good to share.
*One variation that I've tried (with success!) is substituting 1 1/2 cups oats with ground up Ritz crackers.

Hi, visited your site before, but I can not say I've come across while surfing the internet sites and Mirc Oyun tubidy Mynet Mynet Sohbet Sohbet Chat Sohbet Odaları Mirc Blog Portal Güzel Sözler Oyun Eski Mynet Sohbet Mynet Mynet Sohbet  Mynet Sohbet Mynet Sohbet Mirc Mynet Sohbet Mynet Sohbet Mynet Sohbet now we get to see the information I needed. First of all thank you for it. Other than that I am adding your web site and post your favorites uses then be my chance to follow in an orderly manner. 



I substituted half of the shortening (I used Earth Balance) with applesauce, used Ener-G egg replacer, a dash of cinnamon, and added 1/2 cup of raisins.  They were just the right cross between chewy and soft.  I will DEFINITELY be making these again!
Oh, yeah...and sprinkling the salt on top REALLY gives it a nice kick!


Wow - these are excellent. Really simple, but they taste buttery somehow. Mmm...
