Ingredients

1 1/2 cups Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Shortening
3/4 cups Oats (quick or old-fashioned), uncooked
1/4 cup Raisins
2/3 cup Milk

Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 425F.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture has a mealy appearance. Mix in the oats and raisins. Slowly mix in the milk.
Turn the dough out onto a floured board. Knead briefly (1 minute). Roll out to about an eight-inch circle that is 1/4-3/8 inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 12-15 minutes (or until golden brown).
