Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

5 Apr

Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside – can’t be beat!


3 Eggs, well beaten
1 cup Raisins
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 cup Butter
1 cup Brown sugar
1 cup White sugar
2 1/2 cup Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons Baking soda
2 cup Oatmeal
3/4 cup Chopped pecans (optional)


Combine eggs, raisins, and vanilla and let stand for one hour, covered with plastic wrap. Cream together butter and sugars. Add flour, salt, cinnamon and soda to sugar mixture. Mix well. Blend in egg and raisin mixture, oatmeal, and chopped nuts. Dough will be stiff. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet or roll into small balls and flatten slightly on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
Note: Secret is soaking of raisins.
