Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


½ cup butter, softened

½ cup margarine, softened (yes, margarine!)

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar, packed

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2-1/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2-1/2 cups oatmeal (I used the old fashioned kind)

1 cup raisins (or more if you love raisins like I do)



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and margarine, add sugars and beat until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Add vanilla.

Mix dry ingredients and add slowly to creamed mixture. Fold in oatmeal and raisins.

Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes about 4 dozen.

HINT: If you want a chewy cookie use more brown sugar and less white sugar (still needs to total 2 cups). This is true in any cookie recipe.

These are the best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I have even tasted!
