Betty's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This is a cookie recipe that Betty and Carl gave me. They are absolutely delicious, and easy to make. Bets and Carl say that they freeze very well, so you can make them ahead when you have company....or little kids....coming.



  1. Cream shortening and sugar.
  2. Beat eggs and add one at a time.
  3. Add the hot water and sifted dry ingredients.
  4. Add raisins, oatmeal and vanilla.
  5. Mix well and drop by teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool.
  7. Makes 100 small cookies and fewer if large.
