jenn was going to search for an oatmeal cookie recipe. Luckily I found it online so I didn't have to type it all out!
I don't always add the nuts & sometimes I add chocolate chips for hubby.

Mrs Fields Oatmeal Raisin Chews

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a medium bowl combine flour, soda, salt and oats. Mix well and set aside.
In a large bowl blend sugars with electric mixer set at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste.
