So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished! Luke 1:45

Monday's Meal

Alright. This is one of the few recipes I have that I haven't messed with at all. It comes straight from the Sun-maid Raisins website. I cannot begin to tell you how often I have had compliments on these cookies. They are one of the things that people snatch up when I bring them to something.

And just so you know, the Sun-Maid raisin site has several other recipes that sound good too. Of course, you don't have to use their brand of raisins either. But I originally got the cookie recipe from the back of one of the huge bags of their raisins that Sam's Warehouse sells.

So go make some and impress somebody. I won't tell where you got the recipe if you don't.

Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

3/4 cup softened butter or margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats, either quick or old-fashioned
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together butter/margarine, brown sugar, white sugar, milk, egg and vanilla. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix well. Stir in oats and raisins. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Cool.
