   Recipe by: Midwest Living, April 1996
       Preheat the oven to 350 degrees; lightly grease baking sheets. In a
   mixing bowl, beat the maple syrup, shortening and egg with an electric
   mixer on medium speed until the mixture is well combined. In another mixing
   bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry
   ingredients alternately to the syrup mixture with the milk, beating with
   the mixer on low speed after each addition until just combined. Stir in the
   oats, raisins and nuts with a spoon. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto
   the prepared baking sheets.
        Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are
   lightly browned.  Remove and cool the cookies on wire racks. Penny Halsey
