Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

♥ Beginner 

My Dad's all time favorite cookies are Oatmeal Rasin. I think he can smell them from five miles away. Not to mention, they are still a lot healthier of a cookie than most (cough, cough, chocolate chip...)

What you'll need: 

3/4 Cup Butter, Softened
1 Cup packed Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 3/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Cup Raisins

How it's done: 

1. Preheat your oven to 375*F.

2. In a large mixing bowl combine butter and brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.

3. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.

4. Mix in Flour until combined, and hand stir in raisins.

5. Drop by tablespoon full onto non-stick cookie sheet (2 inches apart), and flatten with palm of hand. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
