Servings 4 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars .
  • Stir in eggs and vanilla until well combined.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients, adding raisins last.
  • Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased or parchment lined cookie sheets, leaving space in between for spreading.
  • I like my cookies flatter, so I pressed the dough down with a small drinking glass.
  • Bake at 350° for 10 - 12 minutes until lightly golden brown.
  • Allow to cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack for complete cooling.
  • Store in an airtight container.
