HSM’s Oatmeal Raisin cookies


1/3 cup of shortening

1 cup of brown sugar

1 large egg

1 ¼ cup of flour

1 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

¼ cup of either milk / Orange Juice / Apple Juice

1 cup of oatmeal

½ cup raisins (we like to add a little more than that, coz we love raisins)

Optional ½ cup walnuts (I hate walnuts so I leave them out)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cream the shortening with the brown sugar. Beat in the egg until the mixture is smooth. Add in the flour, the baking powder and the salt. Pour in the milk or juice. Mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients.

Drop spoonfuls of the gooey batter onto greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for ten to 12 minutes. Let sit on baking pan for a few minutes to cool, then remove to cooling rack.

Makes 2 dozen medium sized cookies. This recipe can be doubled or tripled without a problem.
