Oatmeal Molasses Cookies

I wanted to bake something for my granddaughter to take back to college with her.  I found this recipe and knew she would absolutely love these because her two favorites are oatmeal cookies and molasses cookies.  She really enjoyed them. The molasses and oatmeal are a wonderful combination. 

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup molasses
2 cups Quick Cooking Oats
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup raisins, optional
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar.  Add the eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition.  Add remaining ingredients and mix until combined.

Drop cookies by rounded teaspoonfuls two inches apart onto a greased or parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned.

Makes 5 dozen
