Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

My little sister is crazy about oatmeal raisin cookies. She took the initiative to make these (though I definitely snuck some of the batter beforehand–you know, to make sure it was up to snuff).


3/4 cup vegan shortening or margarine

3/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

3 teaspoons Ener-G egg replacer mixed with 2 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 3/4 cups gluten-free oats

1 cup raisins


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg replacer and vanilla until fluffy.

3. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

4. Gradually beat the dry ingredients into the butter mixture.

5. Fold in the oats and raisins.

6. Place teaspoonfuls of the batter onto  ungreased cookie sheets.

7. Bake 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
