Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I really like this oatmeal cookie recipe.  The best part about this recipe is that you can cut out the shortening for applesauce. It cuts the calories almost in half and gives you a muffin like texture.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies – Makes about 2 1/2 dozen

3/4 C shortening or applesauce, 1 1/4 C brown sugar (firmly packed), 1 egg, 1/3 C milk, 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla,3 C   quick oatmeal, 1 C flour,  1/4 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 C raisins, 1 C chopped walnuts (optional)

Mix all ingredients together. Scoop and bake 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
