Oatmeal Currant/Nut Cookies


1 cup sugar
3/4 cup oil
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups oatmeal
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup currants
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl beat sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in oatmeal, flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon to form a soft dough. Stir in currents and nuts.

Form 1-inch balls and flatten slightly (wet hands with water to prevent dough from sticking to hands). Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely before storing.
