Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies
Source: Grace's Place
Time and Temperature: 400 F 8-10 min on ungreased pans
Yield: 62 small cookies
1 cup raisins
1 cup water

3/4 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cups chopped nuts
Simmer raisins in water until plump, drain. Mix together shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients and add to wet. Then stir in oats and nuts.
Note: great cookies, don't try substituting butter for shortening, they're just not as good. I make a half recipe and bake them in my toaster oven.
