Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup shortening
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup applesauce
2 eggs
2 1/4 cup flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp nutmeg
vanilla, salt, cinnamon (no quantity is listed, so just eyeball it.)

Cream shortening & sugar.  Add eggs, then applesauce, then dry ingredients.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Originally the soda and nutmeg were also without measure but Grandma wrote it in later.  I'm guessing that at some point she must have used too much/little and didn't like the results!
