Mrs. Grant's Oatmeal Cookies

2 eggs
2 c brown sugar
2 sticks oleo (or butter)
3 c dry rolled oats
3 c flour
1/2 c hot water
1/2 t salt
1 t ground cinnamon
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 t vanilla
1 c raisins

Soak the raisins in the 1/2 c hot water. Break up any clumps.

Cream sugar and oleo. Add eggs. Add rest except raisins. May need to add more water to get a cookie dough consistency. Add raisins last.

Bake at 350-375 degrees on greased cookie sheets. Anywhere from 8-12 minutes, depending on how loose your dough is and how hot your oven is.

Freeze well; let them cool completely first or they'll stick together in the bag and be damaged when you take them out. Yield: 8 dozen.
