Mom’s Oatmeal Cookies

*Revised recipe (I sort of left out the sugar...) make sure you use the revised recipe below-
So remember when I asked you if mom’s oatmeal cookies called for butter and you said “I’m sure”…well, I knew there was something funny about that recipe. OIL! I had already softened my butter and put it in the mixer. So I went ahead and made them with butter. They aren’t as chewy as mom’s, but they are nice and fluffy (usually they are pretty flat). Of course I omitted the raisins and used chocolate chips. They were good with the butter, but next time I’ll use oil. For nostalgia.

Mom’s Oatmeal Cookies
½ c. oil
2 eggs
1/3 c. molasses
1 ¼ c. sugar
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1 ¾ c. flour
2 c. oats
1 c. raisins
1 c. chopped walnuts

Mix oil, sugar and eggs. Sift flour, salt, soda and cinnamon and then add to mixture gradually. Add oats, raisins and nuts. Bake 400 for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy warm!
