Oatmeal: Day 3

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter flavored Crisco
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbs. milk
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup raisins
1 cup chocolate or cinnamon chips
Cream shortening, sugars and eggs. Mix in milk, vanilla, cinnamon, soda and salt.
Add flour and stir by hand. Add oats and stir. Add raisins and chips, stir just until mixed in.
Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool 10 minutes on sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.
This is a recipe I came up with myself to ensure chewiness. I don't like a crunchy cookie. Be careful not to overbake, they cook a little longer on the pan.
