Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1  c  Raisins
2  c  Whole wheat flour
1  t  Baking soda
1  t  Salt
1/2  ts  Nutmeg
1/2  ts  Cinnamon
2  c  Quick cooking oats
1  c  Shortening at room temp cut
    -into 8 pieces
3/4  c  Granulated sugar
3/4  c  Brown sugar
2  ea  Egg
1/2  c  Chopped nuts

Cover raisins with hot water and let stand for 5 minutes, drain. In medium sized food processor with metal blade inserted combine flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and oats. Cover and pulse 4-5 times. Remove mixture and reserve. Measure into processor bowl, shortening, sugars and eggs. Cover and process 30 seconds. Scrape bowl. Remove cover and add raisins and nuts. Process 5 seconds or until nuts are chopped to desired size. Add flour mixture and combine batter by pulsing 5-6 times, until flour just disappears. Do not over process. The light dusting of flour on the dough surface will blend in easily as dough is shaped. Drop by spoonfuls on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees 10-12 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet several minutes before removing to wire racks to cool.
