How to Make Blue Ribbon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare the Recipe in a Jar:
    In the bottom of a wide mouth quart canning jar place oatmeal and flour
  2. In a bowl mix sugars, powdered egg, baking soda, baking powder, salt and powdered vanilla. Stir ingredients and place in a small sandwich baggie (use a baggie without a ziplock closure). Twist the baggie tight and place baggie of ingredients into the jar.
  3. Place raisins in a small sandwich baggie. Twist the baggie tight and place baggie of ingredients into the jar.
  4. Clean the glass rim of the jar. Seal the jar with a FoodSaver or use an Oxygen Absorber to remove the oxygen from the jar. Place the metal lid on the jar and the metal band.

  5. To make the cookies:
    Open the jar and remove baggies. Discard the oxygen absorber. Place the baggie of the sugar mixture in a mixing bowl and add 1/2 cup shortening and 1/4 cup water. Mix until creamy. Add the flour/oatmeal ingredients and the baggie of raisins and mix. Note: If the raisins start to get a little bit hard soak them in 1/2 cup of hot water for 5-10 minutes. Drain the water off the raisins before adding them to the cookie
  6. Preheat oven 350 Degrees. Drop cookie dough from spoon on cookie sheet. Bake 11-13 minutes until lightly brown on the bottom of the cookie.
