Amazingly Soft Oatmeal Cookies
Soft and delicious. I made half of the dough with both dark and golden raisins (soaked & drained) and the other with dried cranberries and chopped walnuts. Perfect.

oats, quick cooking
In a medium bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 375℉ (190℃) F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with a large fork dipped in sugar. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven.
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
