Mmmm. Just typing the title for the post makes my mouth water!
Are you looking for a great, simple cookie recipe?
Well then, read on, friends.

(Original recipe here.)

You will need:

1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
Plenty of raisins
Plenty of chopped walnuts 

Mix sugar and shortening.
Stir in egg, sour milk, oatmeal, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, raisins and walnuts.
Refrigerate overnight.
Remove next day and add 2 to 2-1/2 c. flour.

Spoon dough into rounds on sheet. Leave adequate space in between for expanding.
