Self Frosting Oatmeal Cookies

This is a recipe that I have been making for years. I got the recipe from my mom. The powdered sugar makes a 'frosting' for the cookie.

Self Frosting Oatmeal Cookies

1 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
1 c. shortening(use ½ c Crisco)
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
1 ½ c flour
½ t. salt
½ t. cinnamon
1/8 t. cloves
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
2 ½ c. quick oatmeal

Cream shortening and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs. Beat until fluffy. Add dry ingredients and oatmeal and mix. Chill dough for 2 hours or more. Mold dough into balls the size of walnuts. Roll in coating of 1 c. powdered sugar and ½ c. finely chopped nuts, if desired. Place on cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Flatten slightly. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350.
