Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These classic cookies are courtesy of the Quaker Oatmeal container. They always come out perfect- dense and chewy with just the right amount of raisins.

Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) margarine or butter, softened
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flower
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1 cup raisins

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, beat margarine/butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes (I baked mine for exactly 9 minutes) or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
