       In large skillet, melt 1/4-cup shortening.  Add oats. Cook and stir on
   medium heat, 10 minutes, or until oats are golden brown. Cool to room
   temperature.  Preheat oven to 350~. Grease baking sheets with shortening.
   Coat with flour, then shake off excess flour. Place remaining shortening in
   medium-size microproof bowl.  Microwave on medium power 1 minute. Repeat
   until melted.  Add toasted oats, sugar, flour, egg, vanilla, baking powder
   and cinnamon. Stir until well-blended.

   baking sheets. Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking
   sheet 1 minute.  Remove carefully to cooling racks with wide pancake
   turner. Source: Milwaukee Sentinel.
