Copycat Schlotskys Oatmeal Cookies

Note: Have you ever had oatmeal cookies from Schlotzkys? They are delicious and I am not a big fan of raisins in my cookies. This recipe is about as close as I have found. The secret to this recipe is soaking the raisins.

Copycat Schlotskys Oatmeal Cookies

3 large eggs, well beaten
1 cup raising
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups oatmeal
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Combine eggs, raisins, and vanilla and let stand for one hour. Cream butter and sugars. Blend in egg-raisin mixture, flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, oatmeal, and chopped nuts. Dough will be stiff. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slighly with hand or measuring cup. Bake at 350° for 10-12 or until lightly browned. If you give the cookie sheet a whack on counter before cooling it helps make them set up more chewy and more uniform shape.

I am about to go make my grocery list, but before I do I am going to check out all the great recipes over at Lisa and Lana's blog for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!
