Our church will be having a fundraiser by selling baked goods so occasionally in between card making I am sneaking in some baking. I was asked to share recipes of what I was baking so I will type out a few of them for you. These cookies were what I baked yesterday.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
2 cups white sugar
2 cups Crisco or margarine
2 teas. salt
2 teas. soda
1/2 cup sweet milk
2 teas. cinnamon
4 cups flour
4 cups oatmeal
2 cups raisin
Cream sugar and shortening, blend in eggs and milk. Fold in remaining dry ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. This makes a big batch of at least five or six dozen. Depends on the size you make them.
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 teas. vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
1 teas. baking soda
1 teas. baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 teas. cinnamon
Mix everything but the 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Put half of the batter in one large loaf or two small ones. Mix remaining sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle half on the batter and swirl the batter and cinnamon/sugar mixture. Repeat this process with the remaining batter and cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
I will share some other recipes another day. These both are very delicious but then hubby likes cinnamon and raisins so I can see why he requests these now and then.
Tomorrow is hubby's cataract surgery so we will be busy most of the day with that I imagine as it is an hour's trip at least to get to the hospital where he will have it done. I will do the driving home at least as he won't be able to drive. I am so glad the weather is decent and I hope it is still that way when he has the other eye done. I am not a fan of winter driving.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have some baking fun too!
