Walnut & Rasin Oatmeal Cookies

Walnut & Rasin Oatmeal Cookies by Janet Carter

Ingredients:

1

cup firmly packed brown sugar

3/4

cup vegetable shortening

1/2

cup granulated sugar

1

egg

1/4

cup water

1

teaspoon vanilla

3

cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)

1

cup all-purpose flour

1

teaspoon salt (optional)

1/2

teaspoon baking soda

¾

Cup chopped walnuts

1

Cup raisins

Procedure:

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, shortening and granulated sugar until creamy. Add egg, water and vanilla; beat well. Add combined oats, flour, salt and baking soda; mix well.
  2. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

Since I added the 3/4 walnuts and 1 c. raisins they were a little hard but very tasty. I prob. need to adjust the cooking time and increase the liquids on this recipe next time. They would be excellent for dunking in coffe or hot tea.

Serving Size:

Yields about 5 dozen.
