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
2 eggs
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.
7Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
8Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack.
9Makes about 4 dozen.
10Bar Cookies: Bake 30 to 35 minutes in ungreased 13x9-inch metal baking pan.

I think this recipe from the Quaker box is the best! I make these all the time when I'm in the mood for some delicious oatmeal raisin cookies! I also like to add walnuts and sometimes chocolate chips too! YUM!
