Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I'm at my parent's house this week and we've been sifting through old recipes. How can you tell a recipe is good? Answer: When it looks like the one above! This is in my mother's handwriting but came from my Nana which came from her mother, Gram. I'm not even going to try to date this recipe but my mom has had it in her possesion for over 25 years. Love it! This is the Raisin cookies I grew up with. I can remember coming home from school to the smell of these in the house. My mom swears they are the best because you soak the raisins in hot water.


Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
3 cups flour
4 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp baking powder

4 cups oatmeal
1 cup hot water
1 box raisins
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt

In a sauce pan over med heat, cook water and raisins until the raisins are full and plump. Do not drain. Cream the sugar, butter, and eggs. Add the raisins to the creamed butter mixture. My mom's recipe says, add the rest of the ingredients. :-) Cook at 350 degrees. Check after 6 min.
