OMG Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies ROCK! I actually followed the recipe and restrained from making them "healthier" with applesauce and flax meal substitutions. Maybe next time...

Alaskan Airlines Pilot Oatmeal Cookies
via "Baking And Boys!" Blog

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour (1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger and cloves (my tweak, called for nutmeg)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted, crushed finely
1 cup walnuts, toasted, barely chopped
1 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and mix together. Add oats, raisins, nuts and any other mix-ins and stir to combine. {They may seem a bit crumbly, but I used a tight little scooper to keep them together. Don't worry, they finish up rich and tender.} Bake on parchment lined baking sheets for 11 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen cookies, depending on size.
