Boil the raisins in water for 5 minutes. Drain and cool. Cream the sugars and shortening. Add the eggs, vanilla and milk. Sift the flour, soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and stir into the creamed mixture. Add the raisins and the oatmeal. Add the nutmeats, if desired. Chill on hour. Make into small balls; press down 2 inches apart. Bake 10 minutes in 350 or 375 degree F oven. Note: Be sure to add the oatmeal and then blend the raisins.

Hi! What is sweet milk and what are nutmeats? I would love a good oatmeal cookie recipe... are these soft cookies? THANKS :)
Sweet milk is just regular milk, as opposed to sour milk.
Nut meats are chopped nuts of any kind.
From the cailber of the (many!) recipes you share, you must be one heck of a cook! I have printed a number of them to try. Thanks for all your contributions!
Editor's Note: Robin's mom was a great cook and wrote cookbooks and she says she has many and is happy to share her recipes with all of us. She is also a great cook!
