Oatmeal Cookies...

Been wishing for a satisfying oatmeal cookie ever since i got back on Indian soil... & the fact that we are holed up in Vizag does not help! So when i came across Joy of Baking's recipe, the cookie on my wishlist looked up at me, begging to be cut off! I did make a few changes though and skipped the cinnamon.
Herez the result! :) 
You need:
brown sugar, tightly packed - 1 cup
butter at room temperature 3/4 cup - i used salted
all purpose flour(maida)- 3/4 cup
oats - 3cups - i used Quaker
1 egg
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
baking soda - 1/2 tsp
raisins - 1/2 cup
walnuts toasted and chopped - 1 cup 
chocolate chips (optional) - 1/2 cup

How to:
Preheat the oven to 200 degree C.
Beat the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth - i used an electric beater. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat to combine well. 
Combine the flour and baking soda and add this to the creamed mixture. Mix well and stir in the nuts, raisins and chocolate chips. Add in the oats & mix well. 
Grease a baking tray and transfer the dough with enough spacing between the cookies- I used a scoop spoon for uniform cookies. Flatten the cookies lightly with the back of the spoon. You need to spoon out your portions keeping in mind that the cookies will flatten out and get bigger. Bake the cookies for about 12 - 15 minutes or till done. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. 

Yaaaayyyy!!! I now have my own batch of oatmeal cookies!! :) Another strike off from my wishlist - which by the way is growing forever! ;)
