♥Aunt Alice's Oatmeal Raisin Rounds♥

Just a simple, little oatmeal cookie with raisins but it's one recipe that I would miss terribly if it got lost. Rich, crispy and chewy all at the same time with just the right amounts of spice. I made these frequently when I had little boys coming home from school looking for a snack and a glass of milk. Now I make them for the little boys of one of my little boys.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
Mix sugar, shortening, eggs, and vanilla thoroughly. Blend remaining ingredients into shortening mixture. Refrigerate dough 4 to 5 hours or overnight. Heat oven to 375. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with greased bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Bake 10 minutes. Makes about 4-1/2 dozen cookies.
