1/2 lb (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups oats
1 cup raisins (I have added in all kinds of other things as well. White chocolate chips were a HUGE hit!)
Heat oven to 350*.
Combine all the dry ingredients.
Beat together butter and sugars.
Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
Drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes.
Cool 1 min and remove to a wire rack.
This recipe should make around 4 dozen if you make them smaller.
