Rum Raisin Oatmeal Cookies/ Seriously Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies/Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies


I posted these together since I use the same base for both cookies

First thing is to re-hydrate the raisins in the rum if you are doing the raisin oatmeal variety.  Otherwise, just start making the base.

Then Cream the Sugars with butter.  This is a really important step and should be creamed until the butter absorbs the sugar which takes almost 5 minutes.  This will keep your cookies from spreading.
Then you add your eggs one at a time beating well after each one.  
Add the dry ingredients
At this point you add either the raisins or the cinnamon chips.

Scoop out onto a cookie sheet.

When they are finished they don't look done but they will continue to cook on the pan, let them cool on the pan.  If you bake them til they look done they will be drier.
