- 1 1/2 eggs, well beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar

- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup toffee bits (or chopped pecans...all optional)
From Food.com: "This is a very important first step that makes the cookie: combine eggs, raisins and vanilla and let stand for one hour. " I wasn't using raisins, so I omitted that. Just in case it made a difference, I still combined the eggs and vanilla and let stand. I'm pretty sure you do that to keep the raisins nice and moist and flavorful, but just in case...I included this step ;)
Cream together butter and sugars.
Add flour, salt, cinnamon and soda and mix well.
Blend in egg-raisin mixture, oatmeal, and toffee bits.
Dough will be stiff.
Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet, or roll into balls and flatten slightly.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
