This is a recipe I got from a family friend then continued to tinker with. It makes a ton of cookies, but they go really fast.
- 1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄4 teaspoon allspice
- 1 cup butter (softened) or 1 cup margarine (softened)
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups old fashioned oats (I use Quaker Oats)
- 2 cups butterscotch chips
- 2 cups raisins
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Combine: flour, baking soda, salt and spices in a small bowl.
- Beat (cream together): butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
- Gradually beat in flour mixture.
- Stir in oats, butterscotch chips and raisins.
- Drop by rounded teaspoons.
- onto cookie sheet.
- Bake 7 to 8 minutes.
- Cool 2 minutes on pan than transfer to rakes till cool.
- Cook's Note in Response to Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Review: I've found it's important to make sure you replace any of the add-ins you leave out (raisins or butterscotch chips) either with the same amount of another add-in or with an equal amount of extra oats. That will keep the cookie from being too "runny".
