Iced Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Cookies!

         GRAB A SEAT & A COOKIE because these will demand you sit down & munch more than one! Perfect with a tall cold glass of milk or a great cup of coffee for dunking, either one will do.       

1 Cup of Shortening
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 & 3/4 Cup Flour
1 TSP Vanilla
1 TSP Salt
2 TSP Cinnamon
1 TSP Baking Soda
3 Cups Oatmeal ( I use Rolled Oats for EXTRA CRUNCH)
1 Cup Raisins
Beat shortening, add sugars beat again, add eggs & vanilla & beat again. Stir flour & add salt, baking soda, cinnamon & mix well. Beat flour mixture into your creamed mixture beating well. Now stir in the oatmeal & then the raisins mixing well. Drop by tablespoonfuls that are heaping, press down with a fork to flatten lightly. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes until nicely browned. Let cool & then drizzle in dollops with the following icing. Makes 3 & 1/2 to 4 dozen cookies.

3 TBS melted butter
1 TSP Vanilla
Dash of Salt
3 to 4 TBS Milk
3 Cups Powdered Sugar or more
Stir vanilla, salt, milk & 1/2 the powdered sugar into the melted butter. Add remaining sugar stirring until smooth. Add more sugar or milk as needed to get a smooth thick but still liquid icing. This will harden after cookies are frosted.
