|½ cup||Butter or margarine|
|¼ cup||(4Tbs) honey|
|4 cups||Oatmeal, uncooked|
|1 cup||Raisins (optional)|
Melt shortening. Add honey and sugar. Add oatmeal (and raisins) quickly before sugar dissolves completely. Blend well and press into a buttered 9x13" pan. Bake at 400 F for 8 - 10 min. Cut into squares while still slightly warm but don't remove from pan until they are firm.
Variation: Dribble ¾ c or less of melted chocolate chips over crunchies while they are still warm.
