    2 cups oatmeal (not the instant)
    1 cup brown sugar (I used Splenda)
    1/2 cup white sugar (Again, Splenda)
    1 cup flour
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/4 c hot water
    1/2 c shortening, melted and cooled


Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Mix well. Roll into 1" balls. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen

If you use Splenda, they are 66 calories each and only 3 grams fat.
