Oatmeal Raisin

Hmm I was in the baking mood.
1/4 shortening or vegetable fat. (You can omit this if you don't want to use shortening in your cookies)

1/2 butter (Use 3/4 butter if you decided to omit the shortening)

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cups of sugar (reduce it if you want cookies that are less sweet)

1 1/4 cups of flour

1 cup of raisin (soaked it in water to make it plumpier)

2 1/4 cup of rolled oats (I don't have rolled oats in hand so I used instant oats instead)

1 teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)

1 teaspoon of vanila extract/essence

2 eggs

1 teaspoon of nutmeg

1 tablespoon of cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon of salt
Blend sugar, brown sugar and butter till they are smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat it till they are fluffy.

Stif together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Gradually add the mixture into the butter mix. Then add in the drained raisins and oatmeal. Blend together. Drop a teaspoon into a greased pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 175C for 15 minutes of until the cookies turn brown and can easily be lifted of the pan
