Chewy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

I  made these awhile ago they were very good.   This recipe came from the cookbook: Sweet 
Our Best Cupcakes, Cookies, Candy and More, which is all the best from the Food Network Magazine it is a nice cookbook worth looking at for sure.

Chewy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies


1 1/4 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup molasses
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup raisins


Combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in large bowl.

Beat the butter, sugar and molasses in large mixing bowl, beat on medium-high until fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Beat in the egg and vanilla until it is smooth.
Reduce the mixer to low and add the flour mixture and beat this until combined. 
Remove mixer bowl and stir in raisins by hand.
Cover the dough and put in frig for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Form 12 balls, about 2 tablespoons each, arrange 3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
Flatten with a fork.
Bake until golden brown, 15 to 17 minutes.
Let cool 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to cooling racks.
