I don't keep sweet stuff in the house and didn't have any fruit but with a definite sweet attack bothering me I hunted in the cupboards. Just made these and they're great! The only prep was soaking overnight 2 cups raisins in some peach schnapps (any fruit liqueur will do).

Cream together 1 stick margarine or butter, a half cup of vegetable oil and 3 cups dark brown sugar. Add one beaten egg. Gradually throw in a couple of cups of white flour and a couple of cups of Quaker oats. Drain the raisins of any excess liquid then dump those into the mix, stir up and add more flour and/or oats if necessary until the right consistency is reached. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. Yield about 18.

I just ate three and feel disgusting!!!!

Only three?? They sound fantastic! I might have stood by the sink and eaten the whole batch.

The sink--foods which leave crumbs and drippy, ripe peaches are always eaten at the sink.

Trust me, after those three in one sitting the rest didn't stay around long and yesterday I made a new batch. Didn't have any peach schnapps left so used raspberry liqueur and also added in some blanched sliced almonds I found in a tin in the back of the pantry and which I lightly toasted. Heavenly! I doubled the batch this time around and plan on giving some to friends. Well, "plan" being the operative word but not all plans come to fruition.
