FAT FREE, Converted by substituting applesauce for the bacon fat
Oatmeal Cookies (Dot's Grandma Lohr)      
3 cups oatmeal (Large flake prefered)  
1 full cup B sugar (I used 1/2 sugar twin, could try more)  
1 1/2 cups flour, (I use a mix of white and whole wheat)  
 1/4 tsp. Salt  
1 tsp. Soda dissolved in 1/2 cup sour milk, (or sour cream)  
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (original called for bacon fat)  
  Preheat oven to 400 degrees f.  
  In a large bowl, cream together the applesauce & sugar   
  Then mix in the rest.  
  Roll out with a rolling pin on a well floured surface to 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.  
  Cut out rounds with an inverted water glass.  
  Bake on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper for 20 to 30 minutes  
  or until golden brown  
  Serve plain or with apple butter, or put together with date filling.  
  Store in cookie tin with a tight fitting lid. (For a few days)  
  or freeze some.  
  Could substitute some rolled rye for some of the oatmeal.  
  Could add some oat bran to the flour mixture and add a little more liquid.  
  Could use some apple juice as part of the liquid for a more appley flavour.  
  Could try mixing in small amounts of Molly McButter for more flavour
