Oatmeal, Raisin, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Cookies

Usually after dinner Skot and I craaaaaave what we have termed "a sweet bite". This particular night we were out of ice cream since I ate almost a whole gallon entirely by myself the week before and we haven't been buying proceeded sweets like oatmeal cream pies (OCP's).  So i went to this awesome website where you can type in what you have in your pantry and it shows you which recipes you can make! It's awesome! 

I keep most baking basics in stock at our house like butter, shortening, vanilla, eggs, milk, flour, sugar (white + brown), oats, and a few fun add ins like raisins, chocolate chips etc. So when I found this recipe, for a basic oatmeal raisin cookie, I decided to add in a few little extra goodies to make it super yummy. 

They took care of our craving for a sweet bite and I now have a great new recipe in my cookie collection. 

  • Makes 24 cookies

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1-1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup raisin
  • 1/4 cup Reese's Peanut Butter chips
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice and cloves; stir into the sugar mixture until well blended. Mix in the rolled oats alternately with the milk. Finally, stir in the raisins,  peanut butter chips, and chocolate chips. Drop heaping spoonfuls 3 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 11 minutes, or until edges are golden and tops are dry. Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute before removing to cool on wire racks.
