Super Duper Oatmeal Cookies


I collect recipes from newspapers, etc. Years ago we would get a small flyer with our power bill that also included a recipe. This is one of those recipes.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 cups vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 4 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 1 (12 ounce) package milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 7 cups quick-cooking oatmeal


  1. Sift or stir together flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.
  2. In large mixing bowl, cream shortening and peanut butter until fluffy; add sugar gradually.
  3. Add eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Beat well; add flour mixture.
  4. Stir in raisins, chocolate chips, walnuts and oatmeal. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Drop by tablespoon onto foil or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
  6. Cookies will spread to about 3 1/2 inches.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes. Do not over-bake; they will look soft.
  8. Leave on cookie sheet for at least 2 minutes after removing from oven.
  9. Wipe crumbs off before putting more cookies on sheet.

Yield: 10-12 dozen.
