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
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.
