Oatmeal cookies are one of my favorites. I love cookies and I think of oatmeal cookies as being a healthier choice. I’m smiling at myself right now. It has been a very busy week, but I’m finally posting the recipe I promised several days ago. These cookies are delicious and the recipe is easy.
1 cup margarine or butter softened 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup granulated sugar 1 tsp baking soda
1 cup brown sugar firmly packed 1 tsp salt
2 eggs 3 cups oats uncooked
1 tsp vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup raisins or 1 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Cream butter and sugars until smooth.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine and blend thoroughly flour,cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Beat these dry ingredients into the creamed butter mixture. Stir in oats, and raisins or walnuts, which ever you prefer.
Drop rounded teaspoons full onto greased baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges start to brown.
