At my precious Skippy's request, I made these Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies for him. He found the recipe, believe it or not, on the underside of the oatmeal container lid. What ever made him look there is beyond me. lol

So, here they are, in all there DELICIOUSNESS!

For this recipe, you will need:

1/2 pound (2 sticks) margarine or butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon (I added a pinch more)
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 cups quick or old fashioned, uncooked oats
1 cup raisins

1. Heat oven to 350*F
2. Beat together margarine and sugars until creamy
3. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well
4. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well
5. Stir in oats and raisins; mix well
6. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet
7. Bake 10 - 12 minutes or until golden brown
8. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack
9. ENJOY!!

Yields approximately 4 dozen (this will vary depending on size of dough used)

Bar Cookies: Bake 30 - 35 minutes in ungreased 13 x 9-inch metal baking pan

Mmm looks delicious. And the new look of your blog too!

Your greetings reminded me of my little daughter who was whining why I didn't bore her somewhere in the USA where people say "Howdy"! She just adore people with the Southern accent she hears in movies and she mimics them so well. When we asked her why, she said she wanted to be a cowgirl and live in a farm and clean animal poops. We all laughed at the poop part but that didn't change her mind.

I'm sure she will love this new look of your blog.
