  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl cream the butter and both sugars together. You want the mixture to be creamy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the bowl. Mix until combined.
  • Add the flour, baking soda and salt, mix until well combined.
  • Next, add the oats and mix until incorporated.
  • Add the raisins and fold in until evenly distributed. Do not use a stand mixer or hand mixer for this step.
  • Use a tablespoon or cookie scoop to drop dough onto the lined baking sheets.
  • Place the cookies in the preheated oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes, then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
  • Cool completely before storing.
  • Serve!
