Recipe:

3 eggs (well beaten)

1 cup of raisins

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 cup of butter

1 cup of brown sugar

Recommended Stories For You

1 cup of white sugar

2 1/2 of cup flour

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon of nutmeg (optional)

2 teaspoons of baking soda

2 cups of oatmeal

1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine beaten eggs, raisins and vanilla in a bowl and let stand for approximately one hour. Combine flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and oatmeal. Set aside. Cream together butter and sugars until a light, fluffy mixture is created. Add flour mixture until just combined. Blend in egg-raisin mixture and chocolate chips. Dough will be stiff.

Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Yields 6 dozen.

Note:

This recipe is NOT for high altitude. To convert to high altitude reduce baking soda from 2 teaspoons to one teaspoon and reduce both sugars from 1 cup each to 3/4 of a cup each.

Hint:

The best secret is soaking the raisins.
