The recipe is called, Grandmother's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.
*Note: It's optional, but I like to add about a 1/2 cup or 1 cup of walnuts in my oatmeal cookies.
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
*In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and granulated and brown sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until blended. Reduce speed to low; beat in flour mixture just until blended. With wooden spoon (I just use a plastic spatula), stir in oats and raisins.
*Drop dough by heaping tablespoons, 2 inches apart, on two ungreased large cookie sheets. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes, rotating cookie sheets between upper and lower oven racks halfway through baking. With metal spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks to cook completely.
*Repeat with remaining dough.
