Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These are the softest and chewiest oatmeal raisin cookies I have ever made. I found the recipe in my mom's old recipe collection. I sometimes add nuts, chocolate chips or other dried fruit in place of or in addition to the raisins.

Cream together:
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar

Beat in:
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine the following, then mix it into the mixture above:
1 & 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

Stir in:
2 & 3/4 cups oats
1 cup raisins

Drop by tablespoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 8-10 min.
