Oatmeal Crisps (pat's Crispy Oatmeal Cookies)

Author/Submitted by: Woman's Day (19xx)
Servings: 42
Categories: Cookies / Desserts

3/4  cup  margarine, softened
3/4  cup  light brown sugar
1/2  cup  sugar
1  large  egg
1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
1/4  teaspoon  salt
3/4  cup  all-purpose flour
1 1/4  cups  quick-cooking oats
1/2  cup  chopped nuts (optional), finely chopped
1/2  cup  raisins, seedless (optional), moist

Cream butter and sugars until fluffy with electric mixer. Beat in egg, vanilla and salt. By hand, stir in flour, a 1/4 cup at a time. Stir in oats. (Add nuts and/or raisins now.) Crop by rounded teaspoons about 2 inches apart. They will spread. But if you want them thinner still, flatten each one with a glass bottom that's been coated in granulated sugar. Bake at 350. About 12 minutes (not too dry!) but browned. Cool on wire rack. Yield: 3-4 dozen If raisins are dry, they will draw moisture from batter as they bake. So use real fresh or plumb them with a little boiling water; drain.
