    Blue Ribbon Oatmeal Cookies
    Even people who don't think they like oatmeal cookies like these

    6 Tablespoons butter (4 Tbl. = cup)
    6 Tablespoons margarine
    1 cup light brown sugar
    cup white sugar
    2 eggs
    4 Tablespoons water
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1-1/2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    2- cups oatmeal
    1 cup raisins (craisins are good in these, too)
    1 cup chopped nuts

    Preheat oven to 350*

    Cream butter, margarine, and sugars together. Add water and vanilla. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Combine flour, salt, soda, and cinnamon. Add to creamed mixture. Stir in oats, raisins, and nuts.

    Drop by teaspoons on to prepared baking sheets, 2 apart. Bake 8-10 minutes or until bottom of cookies are lightly browned. Let stand to firm up before transferring to wire racks to cool. Store tightly covered.

    Makes 4-5 dozen, but they disappear fast.

    Yeah - my favorites for "health-ier" snacks or a late breakfast on the run. I can justify this because it's not that far removed from sitting down to a bowl of oatmeal (nutrition wise) and it's far faster for those "gotta go" days! Thanks for the great award winning recipe!

    Just a question. Why do you use both butter and margerine in the cookie recipe? Is there something in the margerine that adds to the consistancy of the cookie?
