My mom had two cookies that, in my opinion, she was famous for. [She also had a fabulous Blueberry Muffin recipe that cannot be rivaled--I will post that recipe another day.]
So, for your eating pleasure, here is her oatmeal cookie recipe. I have some in the oven right now and Bob's mouth is watering because he LOVES oatmeal cookies.
1 C brown sugar
1t baking powder
1/2t baking soda
3C rolled oats
Sift together first 5 ingredients, then add oats and raisins. Add the wet ingredients all at once and stir with a wooden spoon to wet all ingredients. Scoop out in Tablespoon fulls. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes, till golden brown. [Used greased cookie sheets or parchment paper]
(My mom used to put a walnut half in each before baking and so do I.)
