Many years ago- my friend Lou Ann gave me this recipe which I baked many times over the years. I finally had the recipe laminated because it was so stained with what appears to be the brown sugar. This morning there was either enough time to go the YMCA and work out - or bake cookies. You see I baked cookies!
Nothing makes a house smell better than cookies! And this recipe below - makes 24 large "mall size" cookies.
I think this is a great recipe to make with children. Here is what you will need:
In a large bowl mix:1 cup brown sugar, 3 cups, oatmeal, 1 Tsp salt, 1 Tsp baking powder, 1 cup white sugar, 2 cups flour, 1 Tsp baking soda and in a separate bowl mix 1 cup melted butter, 1 Tsp vanilla and 2 eggs. Add: 1 cup raisins
Mix dry ingredients and raisins. Shape into small balls and press down on cookie sheet. 350 degrees 8-10 minutes Don't overbake -cookies are chewy!
I probably made medium size balls and mine were definitely larger. This recipe made 24 large cookies.
