Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

These are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever eaten.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Simmer raisins and water over medium heat until raisins are plump, about 15 minutes. Drain raisins, reserving the liquid. Add enough water to reserved liquid to measure 1/2 cup.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Mix the shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla thoroughly. Stir in reserved liquid.
  • Blend in the remaining ingredients.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown.
