Default Oatmeal cookies

I don't see any recipes for oatmeal cookies anywhere. Here's one:

Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies

Yield: about 2 dozen

1 1/3 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
2/3 c butter, softened
2 eggs, beaten
1 c applesauce
2 TB vanilla
2 1/2 c flour
2 1/2 c oatmeal
1 c chopped walnuts
1 c dried cranberries

Oven to 375 F.

Mix all in a large bowl. Measure 1/4 cup per cookie, 1/3 cup if you want big ones. Mash it out because it won't spread as it bakes.

Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Yes, they take a long time. They will be soft.

I love a good oatmeal cookie! My grandmother had a wonderful recipe. If I can find it I'll post.

Granny's Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

1 cup raisins
1 cup sugar
1 cup shortening or lard
2 eggs
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

Put the raisins in a small saucepan; add just enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil; remove from heat and let raisins soak. DO NOT DRAIN!!!

In a large bowl, beat together sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat again.

Stir the baking soda into the pan of raisins. It will foam up some; don't worry about it. Dump the whole pan of raisins into the mixing bowl, water and all. Add flour and oatmeal and mix well.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Best if eaten hot out of the oven. (My father calls any cookie that has been allowed to get cold "Old Stale Cookies.")

This is prime comfort food. I don't make them very often, because they cry to be eaten. I put the dough into a plastic bag in the refrigerator and only bake 4 or 6 at a time. This keeps me from eating 12 or 15 cookies a day.
