    I'm giving them for a gift and the recipes I've tried either spread out too much or are too cake-y.

    I checked the website...there are 50 oatmeal related cookie recipes there and several are oatmeal/raisin.

    They are not my fav so my experience with them are limited. I found one I'll try. They are being given as a frozen cookie dough gift.

    thanks.

    My Grand mother's was really crisp. If you want a crisp one, I will dig for it.
    But, you realize don't you, if you give cookie dough, it really does not matter what it bakes into, because it will all be eaten before it makes it into the oven.

    Aggression Oatmeal Cookies

    my DH's FAVOURITE oatmeal cookies!!

    3 cups margarine softened
    6 cups rolled oats
    1 Tbs baking powder
    3 cups flour, all-purpose



    1 These cookies you squeeze, smash, beat. The more aggression you take out on the dough the better the cookies.

    3 Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet about 10-12 minutes at 350.

    3 eggs, well beaten
    1 c. raisins
    1 tsp. vanilla extract ( If you can use the real vanilla. We use like to use our homade vanilla )
    1 c. butter
    1 c. brown sugar ( We make our own brown suger useing 1 cup raw suger to 2 Tbl spoons molasses )
    1 c. raw sugar
    2 1/2 c. flour
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1 tsp. nutmeg, optional
    2 tsp. baking soda
    2 c. oatmeal
    3/4 c. chopped pecans, optional
    6 oz. or more chocolate chips, optional

    Combine eggs, raisins and vanilla; let stand for 1 hour.
    Cream together butter and sugars. Add flour, salt, cinnamon and soda to sugar mixture. Mix well. Blend in egg-raisin mixture, chopped nuts and chocolate chips. Dough will be stiff.

    Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet or roll into small balls and flatten slightly on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
    Yield 6 dozen.
    The best secret is soaking of raisins.
