    Classic Oatmeal Cookies

    Source of Recipe

    Fluffy's Kitchen - adapted from a coworker's recipe about a hundred years ago!

    Recipe Introduction

    This recipe makes a wonderfully dense, chewy oatmeal cookie. Try adding butterscotch or white chocolate chips, or using dried cranberries instead of raisins.

    List of Ingredients

    Sift together thoroughly:
    1 3/4 C flour
    3/4 tsp baking soda
    3/4 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ginger
    1/2 tsp nutmeg

    In a separate bowl, beat together:
    1/2 lb (2 sticks) softened butter
    1 1/2 (one and a half) C packed brown sugar
    1/4 C white sugar

    Add and mix thoroughly:
    2 large eggs
    2 1/2 tsp vanilla

    Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until smooth and well blended.

    Stir in:
    3 1/2 C oats
    1 C raisins
    1 C chopped walnuts


    Drop dough by large tablespoons onto cookie sheet (I use a cookie dough scoop), about 3 inches apart. With lightly greased hands/fingers, flatten cookies slightly.

    Bake about 10-14 minutes, until lightly browned and almost set in center. Let stand on cookie sheet about a minute before removing to a cooling rack.

    Makes about 3 dozen cookies, depending on size.
