Soften a cup (2 sticks) of butter or good-quality margarine.  Cream in 1 1/2 cups of light brown (golden) sugar.  Add two eggs and beat ’til smooth.  Add 1/4 tsp. baking soda, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 – 2 tsp. cinnamon and mix well.   Stir in 1/2 cup milk.  Beat in 1 3/4 cups flour, then 3 cups regular oatmeal (not quick-cooking).  Finally, stir in a cup of raisins really well, so they’re mixed evenly throughout.  You can put more in if you like a lot of raisins.

Spoon tablespoon-size blobs onto lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for approx. 10 minutes.  If you have a tricky oven, check their bottoms after 8 minutes to be sure they’re not getting too dark.  You can also bake for 12 minutes at 325 for a softer cookie.

Eat while still slightly warm for maximum pleasure.  Have lots of milk on hand!
