Spicy Oatmeal Cookies
Sifted all-purpose flour
Eggs, well beaten
Butter or margarine, melted
Dark seedless raisins
Coarsely chopped nuts
Big, soft and delicious!
Preheat oven to 325.
In a bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a
separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Stir to blend; add
sifted ingredients and beat until thoroughly mixed.
Lightly grease cookie sheets (or use non-stick cookie sheets). Drop
dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets about 2 inches
apart. Bake at 325 10-12 minutes or until edges are slightly brown.
Remove carefully and cool on wire racks. Store in airtight containers.
Variation: If children under 2 years old will be eating these, use
sunflower seeds instead of nuts.
Yield: 5 dozen. Martina Boudreau, St. Louis, MO
