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 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.
