Oatmeal Cookies


    3 eggs, well beaten
    1 cup raisins
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1 cup butter

    1 cup brown sugar
    3/4 cup white sugar

    2 1/2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
    2 teaspoons baking soda

    2 cups oatmeal
    3/4 cup chopped pecans

    This is a very important first step that makes the cookie: combine eggs, raisins and vanilla and let stand for one hour.

    Brown the butter.

    Cream together butter and sugars.

    Add flour, salt, cinnamon and soda and mix well.

    Blend in egg-raisin mixture, oatmeal, and chopped nuts.

    Dough will be stiff.

    Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet, or roll into balls and flatten slightly.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
