This is my mother in law's recipe. I swear she has left something out of this recipe because mine are never as good as hers. She is sneaky!!
I also do not like raisins, but I like them in these cookies. Go figure.
1 Cup margarine ( she says she uses Albertson's brand )
1 Cup packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup sugar
1 teas. vanilla
Cream thse ingredients together.
1 1/2 Cups flour
1 teas. salt
1 teas. soda
1 teas. cinnamon ( rounded teas. )
Nutmeg 1/2 to 1 teas.
Mix with the creamed mixture.
1 1/2 Cups raisins that have been soaked in boiling water and drained.
3 1/2 Cups instant oatmeal or 4 Cups depending on dough consistency.
1 Cup walnuts (optional)
Bake at 350 degrees 12 to 13 minutes Will seem under cooked. Let sit 5 minutes on the cookie sheet. Then transfer to a wire rack.
Never double the batch!!! I have been given strict orders. It doesn't turn out as well if you do.
