Crisp Oatmeal Cookies

Here's a wonderful cookie recipe that I was given by a neighbor at a wedding shower, over 40 years ago!   I  used it often when my kids were growing up. Everyone loved these cookies and I felt a bit better knowing that there were some "healthy" ingredients in them like oatmeal, walnuts, and raisins. AND they're  easy to make! I always use my Grandma's big mixing bowl, a green Red Wing Pottery bowl. Since we lived close to where they made the pottery (  a little River town called Red Wing ) we had lots of it when I was growing up. Now it can be rather "pricey".  So here's the recipe... Try it! Your kids ( or grandkids) will love it!

Crisp Oatmeal Cookies

2 cups sugar
2 cups Quick Quaker Oats
2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. each of cinnamon. salt, and soda
2 T. milk
1 cup raisins
2 eggs
1 cup melted shortening

Mix in order.
Let stand 10 min.
Place by tsp. on cookie sheet
Bake 10 minutes in 375 degree oven.
Eat   Yummmmmmm!
