These are soft, chewy, tasty cookies. Great with milk, tea or just by themselves. They can be addicting so watch out! **Make sure everything is room temperature for the best blending process. Raisins and nuts are optional!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, raisins, and vanilla. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda.
  5. Add to the creamed mixture and stir until all of the dry ingredients are absorbed.
  6. Stir in the egg and raisin mixture, then stir in the rolled oats and pecans.
  7. Dough will be stiff. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an unprepared cookie sheet or a cookie sheet lined with baking paper.
  8. *I find the baking paper ensures easy clean up and nicely, brown, baked cookies!
  9. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges are golden. Allow cookies to cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
