Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I came across this recipe several years ago when trying to figure out the perfect oatmeal cookie. These are chewy and delicious and perfect in whatever direction you want to take them, whether it be the traditional oatmeal raisin (as in this post) or try adding cranberries, coconut, or making them chocolate chip- use your imagination because this recipe works with just about everything. So this time I made oatmeal raisin cookies, for which I have included the ingredients below. Let's get to the pictures and recipe!

Here's the dough- quick to mix up!

And here are the cookies ready to go into the oven...

Oatmeal Cookies
-1 cup butter (2 sticks)
-1 cup brown sugar
-1/2 cup white sugar
-2 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1 1/2 cups flour
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-3 cups oats
-1 cup or so mix-ins
If making Oatmeal Raisin add:
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/2 teaspoon cloves
-use raisins as the mix-in
-walnuts optional
Cream the butter and sugars, then beat in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients, then the oats and mix-ins.
Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes.

And here are the baked cookies- enjoy!

Savor it!
