Versatile oatmeal cookie recipe for kids

Versatile Oatmeal cookies for kids
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped (optional)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cream the butter in a mixer or food processor and add the sugars, vanilla extract, and egg, blending until smooth. Sift together the dry ingredients (except old-fashioned oatmeal) in a separate bowl and add to the butter mixture. Blend well.
Fold in the raisins, oatmeal, and walnuts, then drop batter by even tablespoons onto a buttered baking sheet. Leave at least two inches between the cookies because they will spread while baking; in addition, slightly flatten the raw cookies with the bottom of your spoon before setting them in the oven. Bake about 15 minutes or until the cookies turn a golden brown. This recipe makes about 16 large cookies.
You can add any nuts, coconut or candy pieces that you like in place of the walnuts and raisins.
It is a lot of fun to make a large batch and have different add ins for the kids to mix in to their on bowl of dough. It doesn’t have to be exact on this part. Your kids will enjoy sharing their mixture with everyone.
