Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


                         The Holiday season is here in full swing and that means cookie season is
                         among us. A cookie in my opinion just may be the most perfect food, It
                         should have it's own food group. These cookies are perfection...A bit salty,
                         sweet, chewy and the texture is spot on. I hope you make them and enjoy.

                                                             Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

                                                              3/4 cups butter, softened
                                                              3/4 cup white sugar
                                                              3/4 brown sugar
                                                              2 eggs
                                                              1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
                                                              1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
                                                              1 teaspoon baking powder
                                                              1 teaspoon cinnamon
                                                              1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
                                                              1/2 teaspoon salt
                                                              2 3/4 cups rolled oats
                                                              1 1/4 cups raisins ( soaked in hot water for 30 min) Drain

               1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

               2) In a large bowl, cream together butter and both sugars, until smooth. Beat in eggs,
               one at a time and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt,
               and nutmeg. Slowly beat into butter mixture, Don't over mix. Add oats and drained
               raisins, mix. I use a one tablespoon ice cream scoop to scoop out the cookies onto
               the cookie sheet.

              3) Bake 8 to 10 minutes, do not over bake. or until slightly golden. Cool.
