Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I was so sick of the look of those last few Christmas cookies that were still hanging around, I just had to bake something new, and I did, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  I like this recipe because it's easy, they're good and it makes a small batch.  This recipe comes from my Company's Coming Cookies Book from 1988.  I bet you'll like them too, if you try them...

1 cup butter or margarine, softened

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/4 cups rolled oats

1 c. raisins

Cream butter and sugar together.  Beat in egg and vanilla.

Add remaining ingredients.  Mix well.  Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet(I always use parchment paper, no greasing involved)  Bake in 350 oven for 8-10 minutes. Makes 3 1/2 dozen.

  11. Hello there, Friend!
    Oh those look soooo darn good! I'm pretty sure that I could happily eat some version of a cookie every single day of my life! I've been replacing the butter or oil in any that I make with applesauce lately. It really does work to cut out most of the fat! And I would think it would especially blend well into an Oatmeal Cookie. Ok, going to try your recipe tomorrow!
    Thank you!
