Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 1 cup shortening (yep-the unhealthy fat)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup raisins (boiled for 10 minutes & save water)
  • 5 Tbsp raisin juice water (from above) After I am done boiling the raisins, I drain them & put the juice in the freezer for ~ 5minutes so it’s not hot when I add it to the other ingredients
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • A bit of vanilla

Instructions

  1. Mix together. Place teaspoon size balls on cookie sheet and bake 350 degrees until golden brown.
