Oatmeal Cookies

I normally use Paula Deen's Loaded Oatmeal Cookie recipe, but some times you just want to try something different.

So I went recipe hunting through a few cookbooks, and found another recipe in a church cookbook. It was much simpler than Paula's, and I quickly started whipping up the cookies! Church cookbooks are the best!

Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/4 cups butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups flour
3 cups quick oats
1 cup raisins (or chocolate chips!)

Mix in order. Bake at 350 degrees. Bake for 9-10 minutes.

The verdict?
The dough was very thick and that made making dough balls pretty easy. The cookie had a very light taste as there wasn't any spices (ginger, cloves, cinnamon, allspice) that are normally in Oatmeal Raisin cookies. 

These were a hit with everyone in our family, and I thought the amount would have lasted at least three days, but they were all gone in 24 hours. Yes, they were a hit alright!
