Oatmeal Cookies

This is a great Oatmeal cookie recipe. I like to play around with the dried fruits a bit. I especially love to put my cousin's dried cherries in the mix. Enjoy



  • 1 cup shortening or butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raisins or dried cherries or dried blueberries or dried figs all cut up
Simply add to the bowl in order listed above. After the eggs cream it together well, after the Vanilla cream it together again. Add the flour and mix together well, add the oats mix and finally add the cherries and mix. Bake at 375 degrees for around 10-12 minutes. The come out perfect.
