oowy gooey oatmeal cookies

As always it's a "manic Monday". Monday is my baking day, my laundry and house cleaning day. I baked buns with hotdog and corned beef, especial request by hubby for next week is "kalua pork bun". Today I baked oatmeal cookies too and my great critic love it, that means it's yummy and it is. I find the recipe on a label but I alter it my way ;), It tastes like starbucks oatmeal cookie.
Here's how:
3/4 shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup milk (if you have evaporated milk much better)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup raisins
1 cup coarsely chop walnuts
3 cups quick oats, uncooked (but I alter it with 6 packets of instant flavored oatmeal like banana bread, apple cinnamon and cinnamon roll, two of each flavor)

Heat oven to 375F.
Combine shortening, brown sugar, egg, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended.
Combine oat and flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until well blended, stir in raisins and nuts.
Drop rounded spoonful of dough 2 inches apart onto baking sheet. It makes 2 to 2-1/2 dozen.
Bake on 375F for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly brown.
Mine was only 15 pieces cause I used ice cream scoop to even the size and I make it pretty big ones, Yummy.
