Blend together shortening and sugars in a large bowl. Mix in eggs and vanilla; set aside. Sift together flour, salt and baking soda. Fold into shortening mixture; stir in oats and nuts. Form rounded teaspoonfuls into balls and place on greased baking sheets 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes. Let stand on baking sheets for 4 to 5 minutes before removing to wax paper to cool.
Tip: For a toasty, nutty flavor, bake oats before they're used in cookies. Simply spread them on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 300 degrees…cool slightly before stirring into cookie dough.
"I must say this is the best recipe software I have ever owned."

"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
