(New) Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by pesachz

From the Quaker carton (current as of 2012). Also includes variations for Bar Cookies and High Altitude Cooking. I like to substitute the craisins instead of raisins. You might also want to add a dash of nutmeg for an even better taste.

Quaker has changed their oatmeal cookie recipe over the years, which all have been pretty good! I like this one! It is a keeper. It is simple, delicious, and most importantly to DHs liking. :) The only change I made was; instead of using all butter in the recipe, the full 7/8s cup of butter, I used ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons of buttered flavored Crisco. A perfectly delicious cookie!
