    MasakoHI's Note:

    This is a super-size (5 - 6 inch) cookie, the type you find at coffee shops. I toasted the oatmeal before adding them to the dough; this makes them somewhat crunchy, however, you can skip this step. Besides using raisins, you can also add chocolate pieces and or nuts.

      Excellent oatmeal cookie! I've always had a problem with my cookies spreading out, and these didn't at all. Must be the shortening that made the difference. I soaked my raisins in some hot water, draining well, before I added them to the dough. It seems to make them chewier. ( I sometimes add rum flavoring to the water as they soak.) I also used 1 teaspoon of cinnamon instead of two, and skipped the allspice. I added about 3/4 cup of chopped pecans. Really good...I'll be making these again soon. Thanks!

      This is the very best oatmeal cookie that I have ever made. I was really surprised at how chewy/moist they were as I thought they would be more on the crispy side. My family loves them. The only changes I made was to us a #20 ice cream scoop to to scoop them out and I used 1/2 tsp. of freshly grated nutmeg instead of the 1 tsp. of powdered allspice. I was afraid that the allspice would be overpowering and my family doesn't care for a lot of spices. Thank you MasakoHI for a great recipe. McGregor Lass
