Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


 I Love Oatmeal Raisin Cookies because they are about as healthy as a cookie can get and still taste delicious.  I think my oldest son even talked me into letting him have these for breakfast once or twice!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

¾ c. brown sugar
½ c. sugar
1 c. shortening
2 eggs
5 Tbsp milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. oatmeal
2 ½ c. flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking soda
½ tsp. Cinnamon
¼ tsp. Cloves
¼ tsp. Nutmeg
1 c. raisins

Place raisins in a microwave safe bowl, pour grape or apple juice over raisins to cover. Cover bowl and microwave one - two minutes on high until liquid is very hot. Let stand covered 30 minutes.

Cream sugars with butter until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla until well blended. Stir in oatmeal. Mix other dry ingredients and stir into oatmeal mixture. Drain raisins and pat dry with a paper towel. Stir into dough. Drop by Tablespoonful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-14 minutes, until light golden brown.
