Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bliss

Every mommy needs a go to oatmeal raisin cookie recipe.  Look no further, this cookie is chewy and loaded with raisins. If you love a cookie with texture and flavor this one ranks high in both categories!  The only thing better than this cookie, is this cookie and cold milk.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Whisked together and set aside

1 cup butter softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup  firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla
Cream together

3 cups old fashioned oats (no instant)
1 1/2 cup raisins (I mixed golden and regular raisins)
Combine gently

Method: Preheat Oven to 350.  Whisk dry ingredients in a bowl; set aside.  Mix wet ingredients together at low speed, increase speed to cream until fluffy.  Stir in flour mixture and combine gently.  Add oats and raisins until incorporated.   Avoid over mixing. Drop 2 tablespoon scoops of dough onto greased (nonstick spray) cookie sheets. Bake approx. 12 minutes. Cookies should appear golden but a tad moist under cracks.  Allow to sit on sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.  Yields 36 cookies
