1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

3/4 cup orange juice

1/2 cup, minus 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 egg

1/2 cup chopped walnuts, lightly toasted

1/2 cup raisins or chopped dried cranberries


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine dry ingredients. Add remaining ingredients, mix well. Drop by teaspoon on ungreased baking sheet to make 32-34 cookies. Bake 15-20 minutes until lightly browned on top. Remove from oven and then remove from pan to cool.
