1  c  Sugar
3/4  c  Lard
1 3/4  c  Oatmeal
1 3/4  c  Flour
1  t  Baking soda
  pn  Salt
1  c  Brown sugar

Cook raisins till soft in water. Add 1 cup sugar or enough to sweeten. Add a little vinegar to taste and thicken with cornstarch mixed with a little water to make a paste. Mix shortening, baking soda, salt, brown sugar and flour like you do for pie crust. Grease pan and put crumbs in bottom. Pour on raisin mixture, put rest of crumbs on top. Bake in a quick oven. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Many of the recipes in this collection did not contain amounts or oven temperatures. I have typed them in as they appear in the book, typos and all.
