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!


2 c
2/3 c
1 c
white sugar
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 tsp
ground allspice
1/3 tsp
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

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.
Cream shortening and sugar; add eggs. Sift dry ingredients together and add with remaining ingredients.
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.
