    1 cup (1/2 pound or 2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, OR 1 cup shortening

    1 cup brown sugar, packed

    3/4 cup granulated sugar

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

    1 teaspoon cinnamon

    2 large eggs, well beaten

    1 Tbsp vanilla

    3 cups rolled oats (We use Quaker Quick or Old Fashioned. Do NOT use instant.)

    1 1/2 cups raisins

    1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


    1 Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two large cookie sheets or line with Silpat, parchment paper or waxed paper.

    2 In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars; beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs. Add vanilla.

    3 Mix flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in medium bowl. Stir dry ingredients into butter-sugar mixture. Stir in raisins and nuts. Stir in oats.

    4 Spoon out dough by large tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets, leaving at least 2 inches between each cookie.

    5 Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets. Then carefully remove them, using a metal spatula, to a wire rack. Cool completely. They will be quite soft until completely cooled. Store tightly covered.

    Makes about 2 dozen cookies.



    1/2 cup softened butter

    1 cup sugar

    2 eggs

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1/8 teaspoon salt

    2 squares (2 ounces) unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled

    1 cup all-purpose flour

    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    confectioners' sugar


    In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar; beat in eggs, vanilla and salt, beating until light and fluffy. Beat in chocolate until well blended. Stir in flour and chopped walnuts. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on well-greased baking sheet. Bake in preheated 350° oven 10 minutes, or until edges are crisp. Cool for 1 minute; remove to rack to cool completely. Sift confectioners' sugar over tops.

    Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

    well for basic chocolate chip, or peanut butter ( or all the 'normal' kinds) i find that the recipes posted on the back of chocolate chip bags, flour bags, sugar bags, etc are really good!
