2 t vanilla
1 cup raisins
In a small bowl lightly beat eggs and vanilla. Add raisins to egg mixture making sure raisins are immersed.
1 c shortening (crisco vegetable shortening here NOT butter flavor)
1 c brown sugar
1 c white sugar
Cream these together. DO NOT OVERBEAT or it will not be a fluffy cookie.
2.5 c flour (using gold medal or pillsbury brand for best results!)
1 t salt
2 t baking soda
2 t cinnamon
2 generous c quick oats
Mix dry ingredients together then add to creamed sugars a little at a time. Add egg/raisin mixture, incorporate well, then add oats. Dough will be very stiff. You might have to knead a little with your hands. Shape into 1.5 tablespoon sized balls and roll into white sugar. Bake at 350 for 11-13 minutes. DO NOT OVERCOOK!!!
