Oatmeal Animal Crackers

Oatmeal Animal Crackers

2 cups sugar                                   1/2 cup shortening
2 cups old-fashioned oats          1/2 cup hot water
1 tsp baking soda                           1 tbsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt                                       2 to 2 1/2 cups flour

 In a large bowl, combine the sugar, oats, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the shortening until crumbly. Add the water and vanilla. Stir until blended. Add enough flour to form a stiff dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into rectangles or use a floured cookie cutters. Using a floured spatula, transfer to greased baking sheets. Place 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Makes about 4 dozen
