We always get this question “can I leave the raisins out?“.. yes.. you can leave them out. You could also add pecans or walnuts. These cookies are versatile and your family will love them.

Tip: Cookies should come out of the oven a little undercooked. This keeps them from getting hard.

Author: The Southern Lady Cooks

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup shortening I used Crisco
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup raisins

Glaze Ingredients:

  • 2 cups confectionery sugar
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons milk
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and rolled oats in a large mixing bowl.

  • Cut in shortening, mixing until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  • In a smaller, using a mixer, cream together the white sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.

  • Add this to the flour mixture and mix well with mixer. Fold in raisins with a spoon.  Make balls about the size of a small walnut and place on ungreased cookie sheet.

  • I use the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in sugar to mash the cookies out flat.

  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.  Makes about 4 dozen.
