Dessert-Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
This is the other cookie recipe that was in my newspaper. Hope you like oatmeal raisin cookies!
OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES
1 1/2(3/4)cup) sticks butter or margarine, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar (I keep light brown sugar on hand, so that's what I use)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (oatmeal)
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cup raisins
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Mix oatmeal with other dry ingredients, and stir into the sugar mixture. Add raisins and nuts. Mix well, and drop by heaping tablespoons onto sprayed or lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 to 15 minutes until the cookies are golden brown. Makes about 24 large cookies.
