These are nice to keep on hand.freeze well and you can have fresh cookies in a snap...I like to glaze them with a little powdered sugar and hot water and make a thin glaze and brush a little on tops of warm cookies..let set on rack till glaze is dry..the use of nuts and/or raisins is optional

These turned out very well! I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening for the margarine. I creamed the fats and sugars, beat in the eggs and added 1 tablespoon of vanilla. I sifted the flour, 1 teaspoon salt and the baking soda and beat it in just until a bit of flour was still showing. I stirred the oatmeal in by hand and I used 1 cup each of chopped dates, raisins and pecans. This is a pretty stiff dough and lots of it. By the time you get to the oatmeal, you will have to do it by hand. I even got in and mixed the dates, raisins and nuts in with my hands. They took right at 10 minutes in my electric oven after being frozen. I also used parchment paper to bake them on. They are a rather crisp cookie and have a lot of spread. I didn't use the glaze. Grandma2969, this is a great recipe! Thanks for sharing! 4/7/08 update--I was in a hurry and sliced these pretty thick. Baked for 10 minutes and left them on the pans for a couple minutes after taking them out of the oven. I got a very chewy, sort of underbaked cookie doing it this way. We thought they were excellent baked this way!
