Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
½ cup (1 stick) butter plus 6 tablespoons, softened
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups oats uncooked
1 cup raisins (optional)
Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat butter and both types of sugar on medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Beat in flour mixture a little at a time. Add oats and raisins; mix well.
Drop dough onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make sure cookies are small enough to make mini cookies.
Bake in a 350° oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
