How to Make Grandma Nellies Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


  1. Cream first 8 items
    One cup raisins ( bring these to a boil in just enough water to cover them.
    Drain raisins and save 1/2 cup water
    to the raisin water add 1 teaspoon baking soda and stir until disolved.
    add this to the above creamed items
    also add 2 cups oatmeal and 2 cups flour a little at a time until disolved..
    Nuts are optional about 1 cup works well

    these don't spread much so scoop about an ice cream scoop is a good amount per cookie. Bake at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes until slightly brown on edges. I sprinkle with colored sugar for the holidays.
