Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

This is seriously the best oatmeal cookie recipe--it might be hard to stop eating them. I'm not a fan of raisins in cookies, but you can't taste these, and my hubby didn't believe me at first when I mentioned that there were raisins in the cookies. Thanks to my mother-in-law for giving it!

  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Puree in blender raisins, vanilla and eggs. Cream together butter and sugars; add raisin mixture. Mix in dry ingredients. Chill dough. Roll into balls. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
