Ms Hazel's Oatmeal Cookies

An old cookbook recipe.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup solid shortening
2 eggs
2 cups oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the white sugar, brown sugar, shortening and eggs. Mix together until fluffy. Stir in the oats. Sift the flour, baking soda, and baking powder into the oats mixture. Mix well and stir in the vanilla, raisins, and chopped nuts, if using. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minuts or until slightly brown around edges.
