The first step involves the preparation of the dough. Before that though, set two racks in the oven, one in the middle and one in the lower third, and set the oven for pre-heating at 375 degree Fahrenheit. Multiple-rack baking will allow us to control the crispiness of the cookies.
Two separate baking sheets are prepared and are greased with vegetable shortenings.
Take a bowl and mix cream, butter and brown sugar, until they give a light and creamy texture. Eggs and vanilla extract is then added and after thorough mixing, the bowl is set aside.
In another bowl, a medium one, combine the oats, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg.
The mixture in the two bowls is then combined and mixed to form a dough, and raisins and walnuts are added.
The cookies can be cut in two ways. The first method is to make a roll of about 1 cm from the dough and use cutters to create different shaped cookies. The second method is to use a scoop or a spoon to give dough the shape. Either way, the cookies should be placed appropriately apart from each other.
The cookies are placed on the baking sheets and are put inside the oven for 20-25 minutes. The position of the sheets is exchanged after 10 minutes. After the cookies are done, the baking sheets are placed on wire racks for 8-10 minutes, and then taken out.
