Clabber Girl® Baking Powder and Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening have sponsored this post. All opinions, content, and images are mine.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies are among a few that we love baking during the Holiday season. Not only that we enjoy munching on them but also giving as enable gifts.

These are such an incredible dessert, but also simple, versatile, and family-friendly.

I always make a double batch to add a bit of dried fruit for us that loves it, such as raisins or cranberries. Now the winter is here and the joyful holiday season, baking is one the best activities in my opinion.



In the collaboration with Clabber Girl® Baking Powder and Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening, I would like to show you guys how I use these products in my recipes.

I love partnering with brands that are not only a staple of my home but so many more. If you have not heard, Clabber Girl Baking Powder is the #1 brand of baking powder in America.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

Well, since 1850, the brand has been known as an expert in baking ingredients and has been beloved by bakers for generations.

When it comes to Crisco, it has been an essential part of the kitchen and has helped improve the quality of your meals for over 100 years.

Crisco is a versatile ingredient that adapts to your cooking style. Both Clabber Girl® and Crisco® Shortening are brands that we can surely trust.


I used McCann’s® Quick & Easy Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal, which will give you a delicious bowl of oatmeal in just minutes.

However, you can most definitely use McCann’s® Quick Cooking Rolled Irish Oats. Either way, you will love it! McCann’s® goodness starts in the fertile fields of Ireland.


No place on earth produces finer oats. McCann’s® Irish Oatmeal is named for the founder, John McCann.

In 1800, John built Beamond Mill in County Meath to grind the raw oats harvested on Ireland’s bountiful east coast.

May you find love, peace, and joy this holiday season. I hope you bake cookies and create memories with those that you love the most.

#BakingAtHome Happy Holidays!
