Oatmeal Icebox Cookies


This recipe is one of my mother's refrigerator cookies that she made when I was little. The old fashioned sugar cookies that you have on your home page is exactly what mom used to make. They are wonderfully soft and a touch of nutmeg in them. You could not believe how many memories it brings back to me. This is another memory to enclose to you. This is a sandwich type cookie spread with jam in the center.


  • ½ cup shortening
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • ¾ cup any flavor fruit jam


  1. Cream together the shortening and sugar and beat in the egg until light.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and mix into the creamed mixture. Stir in the oatmeal and water until blended. Roll into a 2 inch roll and chill in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Slice cookie dough thinly and bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 6-8 minutes. Cool and put together in sandwiches with jam.
