I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I love oatmeal raisin cookies, but most of my family does not like raisins. I will make the cookie dough separate it and put one with raisins and the other with chocolate or butterscotch cookies. These are a soft & chewy cookie.

(makes 4 dozen)

*1 cup butter, softened
*1 cup white sugar
*1 cup brown sugar, packed
*2 eggs
*2 teaspoons vanilla
*2 cups all-purpose flour
*1 teaspoon baking soda
*1 teaspoon baking powder
*1 teaspoon salt
*1 teaspoon cinnamon
*3 cups old fashion oatmeal
*1 1/2 cups raisins.

~Soak raisins in cold water for about 15-20 minutes before putting them in the cookie (drain water).
~Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
~In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, brown sugar, eggs & vanilla.
~Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt & cinnamon.
~Stir in old fashion oats.
~Mix in raisins.
~Make for 12 minutes.
~Remove from oven and let sit on hot cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing.
