Grandma Shirley’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (adapted gluten-free)

What you need:

1 cup Crisco
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1.5 cups Pamela’s baking mix (or 1.5 cups white flour if you eat gluten)
1 tsp salt
.5 tsp baking soda (1 tsp if you use white flour)
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups oatmeal (1 minute, but I used Bob’s certified GF oats and let the batch sit a while before baking)
.5 cup chopped nuts (I use pecans)
.5 cup raisins

What you do:

Preheat oven to 350. Cream sugars & Crisco. Add eggs & beat. Add salt, soda, vanilla. Mix. Add oatmeal, nuts, & raisins. Bake 12-15 minutes. Cool completely before removing from cookie sheet / baking stone, especially if you make them gluten-free. Wait till they firm up, or they’ll fall right apart on you. I used a baking stone, and they came out perfect after 14-16 minutes.
