Oatmeal Cookies

This recipe is one of my mom’s favorites! I usually make it with raisins, but today I made them with dried cranberries and dark chocolate chips and drizzled them with white chocolate. But no matter how you make them, they are one really yummy cookie!

When my mom makes them, she pours boiling water over her raisins and lets them plump up a bit. Then she saves some of the water she soaked the raisins in to use in the cookies. Just be sure to drain the raisins really well!

3/4 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup water

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

3 cups oatmeal

Mix butter, sugars, egg, water and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients. Stir in oatmeal. Add nuts, raisins, chocolate chips…

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes on greased baking sheets.
