Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Here’s another keeper recipe that I tried for the first time last holiday.  They were gone the first evening, and I had to make more.  I like to use the yellow raisins when I make these.

Title: Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Categories: Christmas, cookies, desserts
Yield: 1 batch

3/4 c  shortening
1 1/3 c  brown sugar
1/2 ts salt
1/4 ts nutmeg
1 ts vanilla
1 ts cinnamon
3/4 ts baking soda
2    eggs
1 c  raisins
2 c  oatmeal
1 1/3 c  flour

Mix together shortening and brown sugar until creamed. Add salt, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, and baking soda; mix well, then mix in eggs. Add raisins, oatmeal, and flour.  Mix well, and drop teaspoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet.   Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. (12 minutes is fine in my oven, longer makes them too crunchy.

I’m thinking that these would be good with a cup of chocolate chips instead of raisins.  Or with cranberries.  Or some nutmeats with chocolate chips.  mmm
