The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!!!

Happy Thursday to everyone!!! It's crazy by how fast my break has flew by already!  I'm one lucky girl because I don't have to go back to work until Monday...woohoo!!  I have to say though, it will be hard to go back after such a LONG break, but I must just push through!

Every year, it is a Christmas tradition that I picked up while growing up, my family and I would make TONS of Christmas goodies.  That's the tradition that I have continued every Christmas since I moved out of my parents house and each year, I add more and more goodies to be made on my "goodies list."  I can't wait to be able to share this tradition and the love of Christmas that I have with my own kiddos when the hubby and I decide to make our family bigger:)  Over the next couple days, I will be sharing with you all some of the delicious, but not so nutritious goodies that I have made!!!

Today, I'm going to share with you, the best oatmeal raisin cookies you will come across!!!

This is what you will need in order to make these delightful little buggers:

1 c of packed brown sugar
1 1/2 c of flour
1/2 c of white sugar
1/2 c of shortening
1/2 c of softened butter
2 eggs
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp of ground cloves
1/2 tsp of salt
3 cs of oats
1 c of raisins

First, you must preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Then grab a large bowl and cream together the butter, shortening, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla until it is smooth.  Next, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt; stir into the sugar mixture.  Then you will want to stir in the oats and raisins.  Scoop out spoonfuls of the batter onto a cookie sheet.  Bake the cookies for about 11 minutes.  After they have cooled store in an air tight container or just eat them right away, up to you!!!!

Thanks for stopping by:):):)

Until next time!!!!
