Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

First of all, let me confess that I do not have a photo of these cookies.  I made them last week and forgot to take photos.  Now they're all gone :)

Theresa's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1 3/4 cup butter (the original recipe called for shortening, but I think butter makes them better)
2 cups sugar
4 cups flour
3 cups rolled oats
2 cups raisins
1/2 cup milk
4 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder

Mix everything together -- the order does not seem to matter.  Just be sure to add the raisins last.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto non-stick cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.

I usually make only half of this recipe because it simply makes too many cookies!  These are cake-like cookies, not crisp ones.  Rick only likes cakey cookies, so these are great for him.

TOO MANY COOKIES?!
There is no such thing.
Just freeze them for later.
Although around this household they just get eaten
