Molasses, Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies

I love these cookies. They take me back to growing up- When I was a teenager I lived in a tiny little town and had very few friends (read: 1, until a year before I moved away and then I had 2...), anyway, Gwen was my one friend and her family had a ranch. I would spend alot of time up there- they totally took me in and adopted me, it was great. Gwen's mom had this recipe- so if we ever wanted to make cookies, this was it.

Molasses, Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies

Mix thoroughly:
1/2 c. shortening
1 1/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/3 c. molasses
Sift together and then stir into shorten/sugar mixture:
1 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
Then stir in:
2 c. rolled oats
1 c. rainsins

Drop by teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes (no longer than that) at 400˚. These cookies are kind of chewy and very hearty.
