Thrifty Finds and Oatmeal Cookies

Michael asked me to make some oatmeal cookies for him last night.
He doesn’t ask for anything very often...so I baked cookies this morning.
His favorite oatmeal cookies with lots of raisins, cinnamon and chunks of walnuts are waiting for him now...

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
  • 1 - 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 -1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1- 1/2 cups butter (I used a combination of butter and coconut oil)
  • Cream this mixture with your mixer
  • Combine the following and add to the creamed mixture
  • 2 -1/3 c flour ( I used self rising because I was out of plain)
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1 -1/2 c. raisins
  • 1 or more cups of walnuts
  • Bake for about ten minutes being careful not to overbake and let cool on a wire rack...these freeze well
