1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup raisins 
Nuts ( optional)


1. This is the very important first step to make the cookie: combine eggs, raisins and vanilla and let stand for an hour. 
2. cream together sugars and butter.
3. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda,and salt and mix well.

4. Blend in egg-raisin mixture.

5. Dough will be stiff.

6. Drop by heaping teaspoon unto greased baking sheet or roll into balls and flatten slightly.
