How to Make Old-fashion oatmeal and raisins cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Simmer raisins and water in a small sauce pan over medium heat until the raisins are plump.
  • 2Drain raisins ; reserving liquid . Add enough water to measure 1/2 cup.
  • 3Pre-heat oven to 400°
  • 4Mix thoroughly shortening , sugar , eggs and vanilla.
  • 5Stir in the reserved liquid.
  • 6Blend in remaining ingredients.
  • 7Drop 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.
