Old Fashion Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 c shortening
1-1/4 c sugar
2 eggs
1/3 c light molasses(opt dark)
1-3/4 c all purpose flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 c uncooked oatmeal
1/2 c chopped nuts (I prefer walnuts)
1 c raisins (try muscat {white})
Oven 400° (mod hot). Mix shortening, sugar, eggs and molasses. Measure flour and dry ingredients in separate bowl, add to shortening mixture. Stir in oatmeal, nuts and raisins. Drop on to lightly greased cookie sheets, bake for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly brown. Note: if you use dark molasses, they will be a lot browner so you need to watch carefully so they do not burn.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
