This recipe came on the back of the Quaker Oats container, so I figured it must be pretty good. :) I compared the ingredients with this recipe and after finding that there were significant differences, I decided this was worth a try. They turned out great--especially when I let them rest on the cookie sheet to set up.
Ingredients1 cup (2 sticks) margarine or butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups oats (quick or old fashioned)
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
