Sheet1 Page 1 GrandMa's® Oatmeal Raisin Big Cookies GrandMa's Cookie Company was founded back in 1914 by Foster Wheeler, but it wasn't until 1977 that the company introduced the popular Big Cookie. This large, soft cookie comes two to a pack and is offered in several varieties, including oatmeal raisin. Now you can bake up a couple batches all your own with this spiffy kitchen clone. Just be sure not to overdo it in the oven. You want these cookies soft and chewy when cool - just like a happy grandma would make 'em -- so take them out when they are just beginning to turn light brown around the edges. 1/2 cup raisins 1/3 cup water 1/2 cup vegetable shortening 1 egg 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/4 cups oats (not instant) 2 teaspoons baking soda 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon salt
