Oatmeal Cookies

These are a favorite because they aren't too sweet and I trick myself into thinking that because they are oatmeal they are good for me. :D  I was slow on taking pictures while making them but here is the recipe!

Recipe obtained from Quaker:

·  1  cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
·  3/4  cup firmly packed brown sugar
·  1/2  cup granulated sugar
·  2  eggs
·  1  teaspoon vanilla
·  1-1/2  cups all-purpose flour
·  1  teaspoon baking soda
·  1  teaspoon ground cinnamon
·  1/2  teaspoon salt (optional)
·  3  cups Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
·  1  cup raisins (optional)


Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer 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 ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.

Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
Store tightly covered.
