Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 egg
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups oats (not instant)
2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Combine raisins with water in a food
processor and blend on high speed for about 1 minute or until very
smooth. Combine this raisin puree with the vegetable shortening,
egg, brown sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix well with electric
mixer until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour with the oats, baking soda,
cinnamon and salt. Pour this dry mixture into the wet mixture and
mix well until ingredients are incorporated. Mix in raisins. Roll
3 tablespoon portions of the dough into a ball in your hands and
press to 1/2-inch flat on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 18-20
minutes. Be careful not to overcook, or the cookies will not be
chewy. Store in a sealed container. Makes 16 to 18 cookies.
