Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I was especially intrigued by this recipe when I saw it calls for raisin juice! Turns out, I do believe that it's that juice that helps make these cookies so uniquely good. I have a friend who LOVES oatmeal cookies and this recipe passed his taste-test with flying colors!

Ingredients

2 c
raisins
2/3 c
shortening
1 c
white sugar
2
eggs
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 tsp
ground allspice
1/3 tsp
salt
2 c
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 c
oats, regular
1/2 c
walnuts, chopped (optional)
1/3 c
raisin liquid*
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place raisins in saucepan; barely cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid.
*If you don't have 1/3 c. liquid, add water to bring to that amount.
2
Cream shortening and sugar; add eggs. Sift dry ingredients together and add with remaining ingredients.
3
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes.

NOTE: I used small ice cream scoop and this recipe made 3 dozen, 2 1/2" cookies.

I have been making moist oatmeal cookies almost identical to these for over 25 years and they are moist and good...I do use oil in mine instead of shortening..healthier, too, and sometimes I use half brown sugar and half white sugar...these are delicious cookies...
