If you want a delicious, crispy AND chewy cookie...then try these! We went through a batch of these in just a couple of days. It's one of those cookies that's easy to grab and munch on as you walk by the cookie jar. I'm not kidding when I say how good these are! The golden raisins are way better than regular raisins in my opinion so they make these cookies extra special. Good, good, good!!!
Oatmeal Almond Cinnamon Cookies
3/4 cup shortening (I used butter flavor)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups oats
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper OR spray with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the shortening, brown sugar, sugar, egg, water and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
Add the oats, flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Mix until smooth.
Add the raisins and almonds and stir just until combined.
Drop by teaspoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) onto prepared pans.
Bake 10 - 12 minutes until lightly golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
