Don's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Don and Sharon live in our neighborhood in Florida. It was mentioned to me that Don's oatmeal cookies were fabulous. Sharon was kind to share the recipe with me.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups rolled oats ( used quick oats)
1 cup raisins
2 Tbl. ground flax seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, butter flavored shortening, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Stir in the oats, raisins and flax-seeds. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes until light golden brown. Do not over bake. Let them cool for 2 minutes before removing from cookie sheets to cool completely.
