Saturday Oven Lovin!

Every Saturday, Tiny Gardener hosts Saturday Oven Lovin over at her blog.
Here's my recipe for this week:

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Brown Sugar (or 1 Cup Sugar & 1 tsp. Molassas)
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 Cup Flour
1/2 tsp. EACH Baking Soda and Salt
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
4 Cups Oatmeal
1 Cup Raisins
Make as you would a normal cookie recipe.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes.

This is probably my favorite Oatmeal Raisin cookie recipe.  It's also a handy recipe to have around as it uses oil instead of butter.  And if you wanted to make this recipe with all shelf-stable items, you could just replace the eggs with egg powder (mixed with water to make the equivalent of two eggs).

Speking of shelf-stable cookery, Yukon Mike over at Living Prepared does quite a few recipes using only shelf-stable items.  Click on any of the "Food" items on the Topics sidebar to see them.
