Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

The same day I baked the Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies for W, I also made some Oatmeal Cookies for myself. Funny, how most people I know can't stand the taste and texture of oatmeal - but which I actually enjoy.

I still have a jar full of instant oatmeal so I've decided to bake a full batch as well. I also ran out of raisins (and got lazy to go to the corner store to buy some) so I just added some chopped walnuts.
Though the chocolate chip cookies got wiped out first, these chewy oatmeal cookies are just as good! See, I wasn't even able to take pictures of the finished product! =)

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

1cup butter or margarine
1cup packed brown sugar
1/2cup granulated white sugar
2pcs eggs
2tsp vanilla extract
2tsp ground cinnamon
1tsp baking soda
1 1/4cup all purpose flour
3cups quick cooking oats (I used Quaker)
1cup chopped walnuts or pecans
and 1cup raisins
(or 2cups raisins or 2cups nuts)

How I did it:
I preheated the oven to 325degF.
I creamed the butter and the white and brown sugars using a stand mixer.
I added the eggs one at a time while mixing at low speed.
Flour, oats, nuts and raisins are added then mixed until well-combined.
Using ice cream scooper (or spoon), I dropped dough balls about 2inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment. (I used the Glad Cook n' Bake)
I baked the dough for 10-12minutes.
Let cool for about 1minute on the baking sheet before transferring to the wire rack to cool completely.
