MOM'S OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES

These are the cookies I remember Mom making for us to sell at our summer lemonade stand under the old oak tree. They're still my favorite. I sometimes add 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Yummy!

MOM'S OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs

Mix together thoroughly shortening, sugar, eggs, milk. Blend in flour sifted with soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir in raisins and oats. Drop by teaspoon onto greased cookie sheets. 3 dozen. Bake at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes.
