Check the recipes on the Dessert Exchange......there are some over there.
On the dessert exchange I posted Oatmeal Jumbos. They are out of this world. I use raisins in some and nuts in some as I have grandchildren that have different tastes of their parents. The parents don't like raisins (or bananas) They grandchildren do though. Glenda

eileen: I double checked the original recipe and it said:
3/4 cup combination of butter and shortening, half each to equal a total of 3/4 cup.
And since I looked it up from the cookbook:
The recipe is from the Second Edition of A Taste of Country, 1989.
The original recipe was submitted by Elizabeth McNeely, La Grange, Illinois.
This makes a large, crispy-chewy, spicy cookie.
great thanks for checking that for me!
These are the ones requested most by my family, along with my Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies:

What is T & T ???
Tried and True
I don't have a recipe in front of me, but the last time I made an oatmeal raisin cookie, I did a few things different. I substituted spelt flour for regular flour, added chopped Brazil nuts and chocolate chips and everyone really thought they were delicious...and a little healthier too with the oatmeal, spelt flour, nuts and raisins.

I just made up the oatmeal mix and noticed there is not any flour in this recipe, is this a mistake or am I missing something? I hope you reply soon........thanks
Is there no flour in the oatmeal cookie mix-?Do you add it to the mix or when you get ready to bake the cookies. I really would like to make up the mix but wonder about the flour. Please Help, dinkins.
I've tried different recipes with high ratings and such but I really do prefer the recipe that's on the Quaker Oats box or lid. It's Tried and True, if nothing else.
I'm surprised no one posted Ann T's recipe. It's wonderful. At the request of my DSIL, I add chocolate chips now, so he gets to eat both of his favorite cookies at the same time.
