To begin, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of raisins with a cup of water. Simmer it over low heat for about 20 minutes, and remove from heat. Let them cool.

In a bowl combine 2 ½ cup flour, ½ teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and ½ teaspoon ground cloves.

And then add 3/4 c vegetable shortening. Cream these all together until smooth.

Drain your raisins into a measuring cup. Add enough water, if needed, to make 1/2 cup of liquid.

And finally the raisins. Fold them all in.

Scoop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto a cookie sheet. Ideally you want to line it with parchment paper, or lightly spritz it with cooking spray. Give these cookies lots of room – I only make 9 at a time.

Bake for 9-10 minutes or until they are golden brown. Allow them to cool about 5 minutes, then remove them to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Repeat with all of the cookie dough. Then enjoy these soft, delicious cookies.

  1. Beautiful cookies, Conni! I love healthy Oatmeal cookies (lol – I always claim that they're healthy because of the oatmeal, nuts and fruit. I won't have anyone convince me otherwise!).
