How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Marilyn's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1 cup raisins, boiled in 1/2 cup of water & set to cool
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter flavored crisco
2 eggs
5 tbsp raisin water
1 tsp soda
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Bake at 350 until they spring back to touch and edges are just barely turning brown.

Frosting, if you want . . . just mix up butter, half and half & powdered sugar.  Add a little glob to the top of the cooled cookies.
