Recipe from the Metropolitan Life Cook Book
This soft cookie from a 1930s edition of the Metropolitan Life Cook Book is scrumptious with milk.
Preheat oven to 350F. Cream the fat, add the sugar gradually and work until creamy. Add the well beaten eggs, milk, oatmeal, flour, soda, cinnamon, salt, and the raisins (if you must). Drop by teaspoonsful (or scoop with a cookie scoop or roll in the palms of your hands) on a buttered pan (or use a Silpat.) Bake for 13-15 minutes. Once removed from the oven, let them set for a couple of minutes to firm up and then scoop onto a wire rack to cool further.
