Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are one of my favorite cookies. EVER.
I may or may not have eaten half the batch already.

Here is a classic recipe of these yummy yum delicious cookies.

 Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon*
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup raisins

*I tend to put more cinnamon then what the recipe calls for. I'm a cinnamon freak.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, and both sugar until smooth.

Beat in the eggs and vanilla until fluffy.

Next, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

Slowly mix in the dry ingredients into the butter mixture.

Finally fold in the oats and raisins.

Use a cookie scoop or drop by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake 8-10 minutes, I like my cookies on the soft side so I bake mine just until the start to brown around the edges, yet still soft and a tiny bit gooey in the middle.
