Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
1 ½ cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 sticks unsalted butter (½ pound), softened but still firm
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
3 cups rolled oats

1.  Beat butter until creamy using the pedal. Add sugars; beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time.
2. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg together, then stir them into butter-sugar mixture with wooden spoon spatula. Stir in oats and raisins.
3. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Form dough into about 1 1/2-inch balls, placing each dough round onto one of two parchment paper–covered, large cookie sheets. 
4. Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, about 22 minutes.  Let cool at least 30 minutes before serving.
