Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I tweaked Quaker's original recipe a bit to suit me. By adding a little Crisco to the recipe, it prevents the cookie from becoming too flat. Also, I use “baking” raisins because they are already plumped and moist; this making the raisins and the cookies soft, chewy, and moist. As with most baking, depending on how accurate your oven temperature is and type of cookie sheets used, baking time will vary.
