Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I heard it through the grapevine…that these oatmeal raisin cookies are the best!  My oatmeal raisin recipe is another recipe, like the peanut butter cookies, which I lost in the computer glitch; I finally was able to recreate this recipe.  Chewy, sweet and chunky with oats and raisins, I hope you enjoy this recipe.


¾ cup Melt

½ cup butter flavored shortening

½ cup sugar

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

3 large eggs

1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

2 ½ cups flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 cups old-fashioned oats

1 cup golden raisins


Cream butter/shortening with brown sugar; add eggs and extract.  Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; add oats and combine with creamed mixture just until combined; add raisins and mix together.  Place on ungreased baking sheet, flatten slightly and then bake 8-10 minutes or until golden. Cool on pan 1 minute and then finish cooling on cooking racks.
