Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
I made these last night and they are already almost gone. I added a quarter cup of crushed walnuts for a bit of extra flavor. These are one of my families absolute favorites! This is the recipe from the Quaker box, but sometimes it's nice to have it on hand in case you buy a store brand.
1 cup margarine or butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups Quicker Quaker Oats or Old-Fashioned Quaker oats, uncooked
1 cup raisins
1Heat oven to 350°F.
2Beat together margarine and sugars until creamy.
3Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
4Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
5Stir in oats and raisins; mix well.
6Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
