Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I have a lot of oatmeal at my house. It's cheap and is versatile. These cookies use the same recipe that I posted a few weeks ago for the Cranberry Oatmeal cookies....except I subbed in raisins. My Uncle gave me a simple request- one he's given me before...classic Oatmeal Raisin. So I whipped these up and sent half to my husband and Brian get's the other half. Can I tell you how hard it was NOT to do something different?! Like soak the raisins in Gran Marnier or something?! Add nuts?! I had to restrain myself.

I think next oatmeal batch I make will be my favorite. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pecan.

1c white sugar
1c packed brown sugar
