Replace raisins with chocolate chips (Coach Lizzy's favorite!), dried cranberries, or butterscotch chips. You can also add ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans.
In a mixing bowl, beat butter with electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add sugars, salt, baking powder, baking soda, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and about half the flour. Beat until thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour. Stir in oats and raisins*. Drop by rounded teaspoons on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375º for 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Enjoy
