Recipe from the book "Cookies, Brownies & Bars" by Elinor Klivans. This is a very easy & quick recipe and the cookies are amazingly yummy. I like the chewiness of it. I guess it is because of the oatmeal that gives this cookie a chewy texture. This is my new found favorite cookie besides the cornflake cookies. The recipe below gives very sweet cookies (as with all American recipes i find), so if you do not like too sweet cookies, dont pack the brown sugar firmly and reduce accordingly.
Oatmeal Raisin Crisps
(from cookies, brownies & bars, by Elinor Klivans)
yield: 40 cookies
2 cups apf

Slowly add the flour mixture and beat on low speed just till incorporated. Add the oats and raisins and beat until incorporated.
4. Place heaping tablespoonfuls of dough 2-1/2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake until the cookie tops are evenly golden, about 11-14mins.
