Oatmeal Raisin Cookies



½ cup white sugar

½ cup packed brown sugar

¼ cup softened butter

¼ cup shortening (Crisco)

½ baking soda

½ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp vanilla

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

1 egg

1 ½ cups quick/instant oats

1 cup flour

½ cup raisins or nuts (we used dried currants ~ personal preference)



Preheat oven to 375F.  Mix all ingredients except oats, flour and raisins/currants/nuts until well combined.  Then mix in oats, flour and raisins/currants/nuts.  Drop onto cookie sheet spacing 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, parchment paper or silicone liner.  Bake about 10 mins until golden brown. We added a 1/2 cup of toffee pieces to our recipe.
