It is believed that oatmeal cakes originated in Scotland many centuries ago and were a staple food for many years. Oatmeal cookies are a variant of them. Records show that the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie was found in the Boston Cooking School Cook Book , written by Fannie Farmer in 1896.
There are many variations of this high fiber cookie.

  1. 1. Using a mixer, cream together brown sugar, sugar, shortening, yogurt, eggs, vanilla and lemon juice.
  2. 2. In a bowl, combine the flour, oats, salt, baking soda, baking powder. Add to the mixer and beat until smooth. At this point, add the raisins, chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
  3. 3. Cover and refrigerate for an hour or so. This makes the dough manageable.
  4. 4. Scoop dough using a 2" scoop ( about walnut size): place on ungreased cookie sheet ( I prefer air bakes)
  5. 5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15- 20 minutes , or when you note some browning around the edges.
  6. 6. Place on waxed paper and allow to cool.
  7. (Note: these cookies freeze well. Just place them in plastic baggies and lay flat in freezer>)
