These cookies have a powdered sugar glaze and it really is delicious, it just sinks into the cookie some and keeps them nice and moist. You could also put cream cheese frosting on these cookies or leave the frosting off altogether. You can also leave the raisins out.

COOKING STEPS

Step 1
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and rolled oats in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2
Cut in shortening, mixing until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Step 3
In a smaller, using a mixer, cream together the white sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.

Step 4
Add this to the flour mixture and mix well with mixer. Fold in raisins with a spoon.  Make balls about the size of a small walnut and place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Step 5
I use the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in sugar to mash the cookies out flat.

Step 6
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.  Makes about 4 dozen.

⭐TIP

Cookies should come out of the oven a little undercooked. This keeps them from getting hard. The icing on these oatmeal cookies really keeps them moist.
