1 c. prunes
3/4 c. Crisco
2 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 c. Quick rolled oats
1/4 c. water (cold)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. brown sugar
Scant 1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
Simmer soft seeded prunes in small amount of water for a few
seconds. Drain any liquid left on prunes into a 1/4 measuring
cup. (I use a total of 1/4 cup liquid.) Cream shortening and
sugars by hand, adding vanilla. Beat eggs with mixer on low speed
into shortening and sugar until nicely creamed. Sift together
flour, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Stir into
creamed mixture along with the prune liquid. Add rolled oats,
prunes and chopped nuts. Drop by soup sized spoonfuls on
ungreased (or very lightly grease) cookie sheet. Bake at 350
degrees for 8 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
