Cape Cod Oatmeal Cookies!! YUM!!

Fire King Mix n Pour Bowl Chantecleer Rooster

Nice Set of Heavy Blue Mixing Bowls

During the Christmas season, we like to make one of my favorite recipes:
Cape Cod Oatmeal Cookies

Now to make this recipe, you need a large mixing bowl! And if you don't have one, we have several beauties listed at!!! These are just a few!! And why buy new when the old mixing bowl are absolutely wonderful vintage pieces!! And most are made in the good old USA!!

Now for the recipe!!

Melt 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup shortning in the microwave. Add 1 cup sugar and blend well. Add 1/4 cup milk and 1 beaten egg. Add 1 TBL molasses. Stir in 1/2 tsp soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp salt. Add 1 1/2 cups flour. Mix well. Add 1 3/4 cup oatmeal and 1 cup raisins. Add 1/2 cup chopped nuts if desired.

Arrange by teaspoonfuls on buttered cookie sheet. Bake until edges are brown. 10-12 minutes at 350. (I love using parchment paper!!)

To make a spicier cookie, DOUBLE the spices!! I like to add 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice mix, too!! And I ALWAYS double the recipe as I freeze them!! We LOVE eating these wonderful cookies right out of the freezer!!

So, for your baking needs, check out!! And we would love to have you visit our store, Korn Kountry Treasures!! Thank you!!
