Soft Oatmeal Cookies

We won't talk about how many of these I ate for lunch yesterday...

In a mixer, cream:

1 cup butter (I used Earth's best "butter")
1 cup white sugar
3/4 to 1 cup brown sugar

When fully creamed, add:

2 eggs, one at a time
1 teaspoon vanilla

In another bowl, mix together:

1 cup white flour (you could use whole wheat or half and half)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt AND/OR one tablespoon flax seed
1.5 - 2 teaspoons cinnamoon

Add this to the creamed mixture. When fully mixed, add

raisins (as much or as little as you want) and
3 cups oatmeal.

Bake at 375 for about ten minutes.

I found that these did not spread when baked, so I flatted then with a fork before baking. They were still thick, but easier to eat and very yummy!
