Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Here's a basic Mennonite/Amish Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
I added the pecans because I'm from Texas!

1 C shortening
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 C flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 C old fashioned  or quick oats
1 C raisins
1 C chopped pecans ( Texans put pecans in everything)

In a bowl, cream:
both sugars

Add eggs, 1 at a time
Add vanilla

In another bowl,  sift together:
baking soda

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients

Fold in:

use a small cookie scoop and place 2" apart on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet pan
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 11 minutes, just until golden brown
Cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet pan then remove cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely

Peace in the Kitchen!
