Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
June 20, 2003

i've made this recipe dozens of times since I first found it on Allrecipes. This is not the same recipe as the Quaker Oat cannister. That is the recipe I use to make. I double checked. Of course there are similarities, butter, sugar, oatmeal, etc. What Beth changes makes all the difference. The use of butter flavored shortening gives moistness and the cloves give great flavor. These are far superior to the recipe on the oatmeal box. They are the most delicious cookies. They have just the right amount of spice and crispy moistness. I would definitely use butter and not margarine. The taste is not the same adn studies are now showing margarine is no healthier than butter. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe, Beth. If you can come up with this great recipe, you should become a cookbook writer.
