Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Some of you may remember me making these (like all the time) when I lived up there! I have been making these and packaging them into snack size zip bags and putting into the freezer to make preparing school lunched cheaper and quicker.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

1 c. margarine
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3 c. old fashioned oats
1 c. nuts or raisins (optional)

Beat together margarine and sugars until creamy.
add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
Mix in flour and baking soda.
Stir in oats and raisins/nuts; mix well.

Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.

Yields approx. 4 dozen

*Cookies will look flat, don't worry, that's how they are "chewy". Also you can use butter, although I've found that turn out differently, still good though.
