When I was in high school, in the sixties, (WOW, am I that old?) I would often go to the cafeteria or the student lunch counter and buy flying saucers! What are those, you say? They are incredibly large oatmeal spice cookies--about five inches in diameter--thus the name! I loved them, and my mom, who collects recipes, happened to see the recipe, shared by the high school, in the local newspaper. Of course she clipped it and I have had this recipe for years and years and years--did I say that I am old now??? hee hee! Here's the 'vintage' recipe:
1/2 t. allspice
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
Wash and soak raisins in hot water, and set aside to drain well.
Cream shortening and sugar until light. Add egg, honey and milk and continue to cream. Combine oatmeal and reserved raisins to the mixture.
