  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick spray.
  2. Place first 3 ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until creamy. Add the beaten egg and vanilla. Beat until mixture is well blended.
  3. Place flour, baking soda and cinnamon (if using) in a small bowl and whisk to blend. Add this dry mixture to butter mixture a little at a time and stir well. Stir in oats, raisins and nuts.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake until brown - about 15 minutes.
  5. Alternative: for thin, crisp cookies, omit sour cream and reduce the flour to 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons. Bake 17 minutes.

Great tasting cookie! I love small batch baking and this made 12 with my small scoop. I followed the recipe as is (which is rare!) and I feel that cinnamon is a must. Thanks!
