Bears and Oatmeal Raisin cookies

Part of earning a Bear badge in Cub Scouts, a boy has to make oatmeal cookies as described in the handbook.

Today, S.E. made oatmeal cookies with modifications: eliminate shortening and replaced it with butter instead, added cinnamon and raisins.

Here's the recipe (adopted from the back of the Quaker Oats container...many years ago).

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup ap flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup raisins

Blend sugar and butter until homogenous. Add the rest of wet ingredients and mix. Add dry ingredients and then raisins. Bake at 350F for 10-13 minutes depending on how you like the texture.
