Big Oatmeal Raisin Chews Recipe at
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 3 large (16 by 14-inch) nonstick baking sheets.

Mix first 6 ingredients in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars in large bowl until well blended, about 1 minute. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until well blended, about 1 minute. On low speed, beat in dry ingredients just until blended (do not over beat). Stir in raisins.

Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto prepared sheets, spacing evenly apart and forming 6 mounds per sheet. Bake until cookies are pale golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool cookies on sheets for 5 minutes. Using metal spatula, transfer cookies to racks and cool completely. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.)

A Big Disappointment
The cookies spread out and browned fast. When I removed them from the oven while they were golden brown, they were doughy in the center, baked longer they were very dark. I adjusted oven temperature, made them smaller, baked them a shorter time, changed pans and tried not using butter on the pans. Every pan was an experiment. The last pan looks the best. I used non-stick butter flavored spray to grease it with, made them smaller and baked them 13 minutes. (My husband thinks they taste great.)
