1/2 cup (one stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar (I use a little less)
1/4 cup granulated sugar (I use a little less)
1 tea vanilla
2/3 cup w/w flour
1/4 t salt
1/2 tea baking soda
1 cup quick oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup semi sweet choc pieces
Cream butter and sugars, add egg and vanilla and beat until fluffy. Mix flour with salt and soda. Stir unto creamed mixture, blending well. Add remaining ingredients. * Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake in preheated 375 oven 10-12 minutes or until golden. Remove and cool on rack.
*when not in a rush, I cover the bowl at this point and wait until the next day to bake. Flavors enhance and the cold dough is easier to work with. I use my hands to make little balls spaced apart on the cookie sheet.
