"Slammin' Cookies"

According to my Chris, these cookies are "slammin'!" They have a great balance of oatmeal and cinnamon. They would also be great with dried cranberries instead of raisins for a slight variation. I did make some without the raisins, but they flattened out a bit more and were slightly drier.

The Ultimate Oatmeal Cookie

1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
3 cups quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup raisins, if desired

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat all ingredients except oats, flour and raisins in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon.

Stir in oats, flour and raisins.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Gobble up while warm and wash down with a glass of milk.
