This is another recipe from my old Marshall Township School PTA cookbook.  This recipe is typed as written and it was submitted by Mrs. Critt Gilbert.  Do any of you Needmore School folks know who she was/is?  I don't recognize the name but this book was printed when I was in 2nd grade.

Set oven at 375 degrees.  Grease lightly 2 large cookie sheets.  Sift together; 2 cups sifted all purpose flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. salt.

Mix 1 cup soft shortening, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup granulated sugar.  Beat until light.  Add 2 unbeaten eggs, one at a time.  Beat well.  Stir in 2 tsp. vanilla and 2 tbsp. milk.  Add 1/2 of flour mixture, mixing well after each addition.  Then mix in 2 cups oatmeal.  drop by tsp. about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.  Bake on top rack of oven about 12 minutes or until brown.  Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
