chuckle MMMM!!! Soft Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This is my MIL's recipe and they are sooo good !! Very easy to make too. Bet ya cant eat just one !! My son and I made them for Dad for Valentines Day. Theyre his favorite. Hope you enjoy them !

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1/2c. sour milk ( 1/2c. milk & 1 ½ tsp. Vinegar)
2 c. shortening
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. Vanilla
½ tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking Soda
2 c. Raisins
4 c. Flour
5 c. Rolled Oats

Cover raisin with boiling water- let sit to soften- drain well

Blend shortening & sugar. Add eggs- one at a time. Add vanilla & salt. Mix well. Add raisins to dry mix. Dissolve soda in milk. Add flour alternatively with milk. Add rolled oats.

Bake at 375* for 12-15 minutes (until light brown). Drop by good size tablespoon ( don’t roll into balls)

I double raisins for this recipe This makes a lot of cookies

My oven tends to bake hot so I usually bake them at 350* for about 13-14 min.--just until light brown. They might look like theyre still mushy inside but they should firm up as they cool.

You cant screw this recipe up, believe me......I have mixed these together in every order and they still turn out great. If your family likes iced cookies, I take a can of vanilla icing and nuke it to make it kinda runny....then pour over them. These freeze very well too.

need old family recipe oatmeal cookies

My mother-in-law recentely had some cookies that she said were the best oatmeal raisin cookies she had ever tasted. She called the person who made them and was told that it was a family secret and she couldn't give out the recipe. The only thing she can tell me about them is that they are made with old fashioned oats, not instant and she thinks they were rolled in sugar. Can anyone help me find a similar recipe so I can make them for her? Thanks!! Oh yeah...I fogot to say she said it tasted like there was molasses in it too.

Oatmeal Cookies (sugarless)

Sugarless Oatmeal Cookies

3 bananas, mashed
2 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup reduced-calorie margarine, melted
1/4 cup skim milk
1/2 cup figs, cut in small pieces - optional
walnuts - optional

Combine all ingredients, beating well. Let stand
5 minutes so that oats will absorb moisture.
Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto
ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350º for
15-20 minuts. Let stand 1 minute on cookie
sheet; transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

She adds: that she doubles this recipe and
freezes some.

Added by moderator - there are some sugars inthe fruit
