Vanishing Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

They aren’t called vanishing cookies for no reason – these cookies will disappear just as fast as you can pull them out of the oven!
  • 2 sticks butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt, optional
  • 3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats, uncooked
  • 1 cup craisins

Beat margarine, brown sugar, and sugar until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, if using. Add to sugar mixture; mix well. Stir in oats and craisins; mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack.

Notes:
To make into bar cookies: Bake 30-35 minutes in ungreased 13″ x 9″ metal baking pan.
