Anytime Oatmeal Cookies

We tried a new Oatmeal Cookie recipe for our Sunday night treat today. I found the recipe with an advertisement for a Martha Stewart magazine. They aren't as sweet as our other favorite Oatmeal Cookies, but that's okay by me. Depends what you're in the mood for, I suppose. We all liked them and they were quick and easy -- so into the recipe archives they go!

Recipe from Martha Stewart

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup golden raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt into a bowl. Beat butter and sugars until pale and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla, then flour mixture. Mix in oats, then raisins.

Drop dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until edges are golden, about 14 minutes. Let cookies cool on wire rack.
