{Recipe} Big Old Oatmeal Cookies

Here it is - the recipe from the cooking demo Chris Fennimore and Rick Sebak did at the Hometown Homegrown event yesterday. It makes about 3 dozen if you make your cookies dainty. Warning: these are not for the faint of heart, and I'd suggest making them small!

{Big Old Oatmeal Cookies}
Recipe courtesy of Chris Fennimore; a variation on Rick{Sebak}'s Big Old Cookies aka Cowboy Cookies

1 cup butter flavored Crisco
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cinnamon {I'd use a tablespoon!}
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1 cup walnuts
1 cup raisins
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream the shortening with the sugars. Add the eggs, vanilla, water and cinnamon and beat until the mixture is fluffy. Add the flour, salt and baking soda, then mix on low until it forms a batter. Add the walnuts, raisins, and chocolate chips, then mix on very low until they are well incorporated. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Use a small ice cream scoop to measure the dough, and place on parchment covered baking sheet. Use wet fingers to slightly flatten the portions. Bake 10-12 minutes, and remove to a cooling rack.
Finished cookie!
