Oatmeal Delights (Cookies)

November 19, 2009
These cookies are substantial and even good for you. I used Original Flavor Honey - but you could experiment with Orange Flavored for a more fruity flavor.

1 ½ cups shortening
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup Monastery Creamed Honey
2 eggs
2 Teaspoons Vanilla

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cloves
2 cups raisins
2 cups nuts
5 cups oats

Mix first 5 ingredients
Sift together and stir in remaining dry ingredients. Add raisins, nuts, and oats. Drop by spoonfuls – press into desired shape. Bake 10 – 15 minutes depending on size at preheated oven 350°. Makes 10 dozen small. 5 dozen larger size cookies.
