My daughter and I had fun baking these cookies to bring to the Independence Day picnic. Oatmeal Raisin are a family favorite!
1/2 cup plus 6 TBS butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups Quaker Oats (Quick or Old Fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup raisins
Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
Add oats and raisins; mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto un-greased (or parchment lined) cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool for one minute on cookie sheets; remove to a wire rack.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
Bar Cookies: Bake 30-35 minutes in un-greased 9x13 inch metal baking pan.
