    Yummy InMyTummy's Note:

    Hands down the best cookies I've ever tasted. I make then all the time and am always asked for the recipe! Sometimes, instead of raisins, I put in chocolate chips, and (my favorite) chocolate covered raisins.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 42

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Sift (sifting is important!) flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg (its not in the recipe, but I add about 1/8-1/4 tsp of ground cloves, too) into a mixing bowl.
    3. 3
      Beat butter, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, and vanilla with a hand mixer at medium speed.
    4. 4
      Sift (yes, again!) flour mixture into butter mixture and mix well.
    5. 5
      Fold in raisins (or chocolate chips or chocolate covered raisins) and oats.
    6. 6
      Spoon 1.5 inch balls onto non-stick cookie sheet.
    7. 7
      Bake at 350°F for 6-9 minutes, rotating half way through baking. (Should be lightly firm in the center when done) Be careful -- oatmeal raisin cookies don't look done when they are, so they are very easy to over cook (unless you want then to be crispy) :).

      I love this recipe. I like to add craisins and chopped nuts / or butterscotch chips. I just recently cut the butter to 1 cube and added 1/4 C. applesauce instead to reduce the fat. They turned out good - not as rich, but much healthier.

      These were great! I added a little ginger and allspice and divided the dough in half so I could put chocolate chips in some, raisins in the other. These are so addictive, I have to force myself not to keep on eating them.
