Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Crispy and Chewy

“Oatmeal Raisin – My all-time favorite cookie!  Actually  I love anything with oats in it.

 My kind of oatmeal cookie is thin and buttery, crispy and chewy and this is all that!  

I thought I had the best recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies until I tweaked these!  Enjoy!”

Yield: 48 cookies

INGREDIENTS:

1-1/2 cups butter   (3 sticks)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups regular old-fashioned oats, not instant
1-1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
2-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1-1/2 cups raisins

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. In a large bowl with mixer on medium speed, cream the butter until fluffy.
3. Add the brown sugar and sugar and mix well.
4. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix well. Set aside.
5. In a small bowl, mix by hand the oats, flour, salt, and baking soda.
6. Add this dry mixture to the creamed mixture, beat on low-speed until just combined.
7. Stir in the raisins on lowest speed.
8. Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets two inches apart. Slightly flatten the cookies with a spatula.
