Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
I used to think that Grandma Closs (Plainwell, MI) was the only person that could make Raisin Oatmeal Cookies. NOT TRUE. This is a Whiz Bang recipe. The only changes made to Sutton's recipe were the addition of 1 tsp. nutmeg and changing the shortening to 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) and adding 1/4 cup butter (4 tbsp). The biggest problem I had was getting the amount I put on the cookie tray correct. I found a dollup of batter slightly smaller than a silver dollar yields a very nice size cookie. Two of these cookies and you're running around looking for a cold glass of milk that will go great with the next several you'll want. By the way, I never grease cookie trays. My local super market caries parchment paper and it ALWAYS puts out cookies that are evenly baked on the bottom and, I believe, come out better with the use of the product.

Mother's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
This was my third baking recipe since I've started cooking -- and it's a KEEPER. I followed other reviewers by adding a teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. It turned out beautifully and oh so good. As a rank beginner, I heartily recommend this to those who want a success to show off to family and friends.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
The first ever from scratch cookie recipe I've done and this one is a hit! I have to have instructions to put water in a saucepan, but it went off without a hitch. I recommend it to any new cook. I followed hints from some reviewers (a touch more peanut butter and flour and a teaspoon of vanilla,) At 71, I'm really excited, especially with the AllRecipes site as a lifesaver for us beginners.
