As you all know my dad (Jason) is a great chef. Me on the other hand an 8 year old is picking it up! I have been looking in one of his little boxes of recipes for a long time, but we never seem to have any of the ingredients. So today (March 8th 2010) I looked hard and I decided to make Raisin Cookies! But it was a secret I didn't tell anybody what I was making.
After a while of putting things together I got done with all the ingredients I needed help stirring. So my dad came in still not knowing what I was making and stirred it real good. After that as you could imagine I had to tell him what i was making. So I did and he was very proud!
So then we put 12 in the oven and we had 26 more in so there were 38 cookies in all! Thats a lot of cookies! When all of them were ready my dad and I shared one cookie! YUM! I had made my very own cookies! Even I was proud!
Here are the ingredients:
Grind or chop 1 cup raisins-pour 1/2 cup hot water over them.
Stir in 2 tsp.soda & let sit.
Cream 2 cups sugar, 1 tsp. salt & 1 cup crisco.
Add 2 eggs,2 cups oatmeal and 4 cups flour.
Add raisins and 1 cup nutmeats.
Drop on ungreased cookie sheet/ press with fork dipped flour and bake for 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees.
