This is a family favorite--moist and chewy. This is an old recipe ,and the trick to getting a moist cookie, is to take them from the oven when the middle does not look done. This recipe was on a Quaker oats box years ago.

I'm reviewing this because the texture was just what I was looking for, but I did deviate just a little to suit my taste. Mmmm..these are fabulous. They bake up puffy and chewy and beautifully golden browned at about 10 minutes. My deviation? I did plump the raisins..and used the Tbsp of raisin water, unheated, for the water in the recipe. I also added 1/4 tsp more of salt..cuz I think oatmeal always needs a little more to punch it up. I also added 3/4 cup finely chopped, toasted walnuts. Oh..I only had 1 stick of butter so had to sub in 1/2 cup shortening.
