Spiced Jelly Bean Oatmeal Cookies
My mom has made these cookies ever since I can remember but she used cut up gumdrops in them. Jelly beans taste just as great! I like to use spiced jelly beans.
Makes 24 cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup shortening
6 Tbsp. brown sugar
6 Tbsp. sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup flour
1 cup oatmeal (rolled oats)
1 cup (1/2 lb) small spiced jelly beans
1/4 cup rough chopped Wonderful Pistachios, Shelled 
1/4 cup raisins or chopped dried cranberries
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream butter sugars, egg and vanilla. Sift together dry ingredients and blend in. Mix in oatmeal, jelly beans, pistachios and raisins. Chill 2 hours, then drop by tablespoonfuls on a greased baking sheet. Bake about 14-16 minutes or until golden.
