Soft Oatmeal Cookies

If you like soft cookies, (like me) these are some great ones for you! Healthy, super tasty and really soft. One of my favorites, plus they are really fast and easy to make!

Stir together and set aside:
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Cream together:
1/3 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. Crisco (I used peanut butter instead)
1/4 c. butter

Add to creamed mixture:
1 egg
1-1/2 c. old-fashioned oatmeal (uncooked)
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Add reserved dry ingredients, 2 Tbsp. milk, 1/2 c. chopped walnuts, (just about any nuts will do or just use chunky peanut butter). Optional: 2/3 c. chopped raisins. You can (like me) put some toffee bits in also.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets, leaving 1 to 2 inches between cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, or until very lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

Makes: 36 cookies.

Okay, I'll admit it, I skipped the raisins too. I put in Toffee bits instead. : ]
