Grandma Stain's Oatmeal Cookies
I found this recipe and decided to make it for February's recipe exchange. Theme is family favorites. The recipe is from July 21 1992 Family Circle. Sharon Whitt won a blue ribbon at the Skowhegan State Fair in Maine. This was her grandmothers recipe. I'm sure it was a favorite in Sharon Whitt's family!
1 1/2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup ( 1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup milk
1 cup quick cooking rolled oats ( NOT instant)
1 cup raisins
1- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2- Sift together four, baking soda, cinnamon and salt onto waxed paper. Beat together the sugar, butter and vanilla at low speed for 1 minute. Scrape down sides. Increase speed to high, beat 3 minutes. Reduce speed to moderate. Beat in eggs- one at a time. Beat in milk. Gradually beat in four mixture. Stir in oats and raisins.
3- Drop dough by slightly rounded teaspoons on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place dough 2 inches apart ( they will spread)
4- Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Cookies will not be firm. Once out of the oven leave them on the cookie sheet a few minutes before removing them
5- Transfer to wire rack and cool.
Note: Oven temp was mentioned twice . Number 4 stated to bake in 350 oven.
