Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These cookies are one of those standard recipes you find on a box or can, in this case, of Quaker Oats. They are comfort food in the cookie department -- certain to conjure up memories of childhood cookie jars and after-school treats. Let your children help make them with you.


Heat oven to 350°F. Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; add to butter mixture, mixing well. Stir in oats and raisins; mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet. Remove to wire rack.
