2 c. oil 2 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
2 t. vanilla 2 t. salt
2 t. baking powder 2 t. baking soda
4 eggs 3 1/2 c. flour
6 1/4 c. oatmeal 1/2 c. rice crispy cereal 1 c. raisins (You can subsitute nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, craisins, whatever ou like to for the cereal and raisins)
Cream first 7 ingredients
Add eggs. Add flour and oatmeal
Mix well. Add raisins and cereal.
Use cookie scoop to scoop onto trays and bake about 10 min. They should look puffed up and not quite down. Do not take off tray right away, but let stand about 2 minutes before taking them off.
This is a chewy oatmeal cookie. (I cut the sugar down a little, but you can cut it down a bit more if you like).
