How to Make Old-fashion oatmeal and raisins cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Simmer raisins and water in a small sauce pan over medium heat until the raisins are plump.
  2. Drain raisins ; reserving liquid . Add enough water to measure 1/2 cup.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 400°
  4. Mix thoroughly shortening , sugar , eggs and vanilla.
  5. Stir in the reserved liquid.
  6. Blend in remaining ingredients.
  7. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2" apart on a un-greased baking sheet. I like bigger cookies so I use a medium ice cream scooper , it makes perfectly rounded cookies.
  8. Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until brown.
  9. * if using self rising flour , omit soda , salt and baking powder.
