Clara’s Oatmeal Cookies

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a baking sheet.


Combine the sugar and shortening in a mixer. Add the eggs, vanilla and dissolved baking soda and beat until smooth.


Combine the flour and salt and slowly add to the wet ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the oatmeal, coconut and raisins.


Flatten pieces of dough about the size of walnuts on the baking sheet, spaced 1 inch apart. Bake the cookies until they’re golden and crisp,15 to 20 minutes.

These flavorful oatmeal cookies are extra crunchy, great for dunking.
