famous oatmeal cookies

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups Quaker Oats
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon soda

Beat margarine, sugars, egg, water and vanilla until creamy. Add combined remaining ingredients and mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto greased cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 12-15 minutes. Chopped nuts, raisins, chocolate chips or coconut may be added. If you're watching cholesterol, use margarine, throw out the egg yolk and use half the sugar called for. The cookies are just as good.
