  • Add the eggs and the vanilla; beat until combined. Beat in the flour with the mixer on low speed. With a wooden spoon, stir in the rolled oats and the raisins and/or chocolate.

  • Using 1/4 cup dough for each cookie, drop the dough 3 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Press the dough into 4-inch circles.

  • Bake the cookies in a 375° F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges are golden. Let the cookies stand for 1 minute on the cookie sheets. Transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool.
