Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

What is the big deal about an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe?

Normally I would say nothing.

But, it is my nature to cook up to five different versions of one type of recipe.

Having said that, this is the recipe I like best for oatmeal raisin cookies.

It stayed moist and tasty and it was just the right amount of spice and sugar to be considered a really good cookie recipe.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

3/4 cup Butter, softened

3/4 cup Sugar
3/4 cup packed Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt
2 3/4 cup Rolled oats
1 cup Raisins

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar until smooth.

Beat in the eggs and vanilla until fluffy.

Stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

Gradually beat into the butter mixture.

Stir in the oats and raisins.

Drop by the teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool slightly, remove from the cookie sheet to a wire rack.
