   1. Cream together the shortening and sugars. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
   2. Sift together the flour, soda, and salt, then stir it into the creamed
   mixture.
   3. Stir in the oatmeal, 1/2 cup a time, mixing thoroughly after each
   addition. Add the nuts after the last addition of oatmeal.
   4. Divide the dough in half and roll out each portion into a long log
   about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap and chill each log for several hours in
   the refrigerator.
   5. Slice the dough into disks, about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick and place on a
   greased baking sheet. Be sure to leave room for the cookies to spread as
   they cook.
   6. Bake in a pre-heated 350 F oven for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly
   browned. Remove from the sheet to cool.
