Moms Oatmeal Cookies 1940


1 ½ cup flour

½ tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp cloves

2/3 cup shortening

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

¼ cup water

2 cups oats

1 cup raisins

Preaheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients together.

Add moist ingredients. Beat until smooth.

Blend in oats and raisins.

Drop by the teaspoonful onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake 12-15 minutes for the first batch and 10-12 for each batch after the first batch.

These will almost look underdone, but they maintain moistness if let to sit for 5 minutes out of the oven.
