The Very Best Oatmeal Cookies

It never dawned on me that I had put this recipe in the cookbook but never the blog. Thank you Joni for the best oatmeal cookie  recipe EVER…the soaking of the raisins make all the difference in the world.

3 eggs, beaten well

1 cup golden raisins

1 teas vanilla

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup light brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

2 1/2 cups flour

1 teas salt

3 teas cinnamon

2 teas baking soda

2 cups regular oatmeal

1 cup pecans

Combine eggs, vanilla and stir. Add raisins and stir. Cover and let stand for 1 hour. Do not skip this step.

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, salt and soda. After stirring the flour mixture to combine add it to the creamed mixture and mix well. Add he egg-raisin mixture and combine until it is well mixed. Add the oatmeal and nuts. Dough will be stiff. Drop by teaspoon or roll into small balls and flatten slightly on cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cook on paper towel spread out on counter. Makes about 4 dz.
