    1. 1
      To grease cookie sheets: Grease cookie sheets lightly. Too much shortening on the baking sheet will cause cookies to spread and edges will be too thin and too brown. Do not use butter or margarine to grease sheets.
    2. 2
      Grind raisins and peanuts in food grinder, using medium blade; set aside.
    3. 3
      Sift together 6 cups flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg into very large bowl or dishpan. Cut in lard until mixture forms fine crumbs, using pastry blender. Add ground raisin mixture, sugar and oats. Mix well., using hands if necessary.
    4. 4
      Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk in small bowl. Add molasses and 3 of the eggs to buttermilk mixture. Beat with rotary beater until blended.
    5. 5
      Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture; mix well with spoon. Drop mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls or a small ice cream scoop, about 3 inches apart, on greased baking sheets. Flatten each with bottom of drinking glass dipped in flour to 2 ½ inch round.
    6. 6
      Beat remaining egg in small bowl until blended. Brush tops of each round with egg.

      I totally agree with Rita L. The raisins need to stand out more for texture. Adding chips is a great suggestion Rita.

      This make so much it may be difficult for the average baker. You do need a very big and powerful mixer. I did have to add 1 cup more oats because the batter was to thin. Those is a good base for a variety of oatmeal cookies as I made. After making the batter I made 1/3 as called for 1/3 with cinnamon chips and 1/3 with peanut butter and chocolate chips. I would liked to have the raisins more there size so to bite into them for a chewy texture. Toffee chips, cranraisins, butterscotch chips are a couple others that would be great in these. I used butter that was chilled and cut it into the flour using my food processor. Chilled the dough for 2 hours before baking. They stayed full and are chewy good.
