Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

Two classic favorites, chocolate chip (left) and oatmeal raisin(right)
Oatmeal Recipe

3 1/4 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons shortening
1 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp.pure vanilla
4 cups regular oats
2 1/2 cups raisins

Blend flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a bowl.
Set aside. In another bowl, blend shortening, brown sugar, sugar,
eggs and vanilla. Beat till fluffy. Mix in dry ingredients until well
blended, about 2 minutes. Add raisins and oats and mix. On a
greased cookie sheet, you can use a meatball scoop or 2 1/2 tablespoons of dough. Use cooking spray on the bottom of a glass and press down on each ball until about 1/4" thick, and about 3" across. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar if you like. Bake at 350* 9-12 minutes. Cool on sheets.
