From the shapes of squash varieties to the parts of a goat; from how a barn is constructed to what makes up a beehive, every corner of the barnyard is uncovered and celebrated.

Oatmeal Crisps Recipe

2 cups shortening
2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 cups old-fashioned oats
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped nuts
6 ounces (1 cup) chocolate morsels (optional)

1. Mix together all of the ingredients. Put several large spoonfuls of dough onto a sheet of waxed paper. Chill at least overnight.

2. Preheat oven to 350° F. Bake the dough on ungreased baking sheets for about 7 minutes, or until edges just begin to lightly brown. The dough keeps for weeks rolled up in the refrigerator, and it is easy to slice and bake at any time.

Yield: 6 dozen oatmeal crisps
