Oatmeal Cookies With Raisinets

I've been thinking about making cookies with Raisinets for a long time... Plan A was to make a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookie dough and just sub the Raisinets for the chips, in looking at recipes that is indeed an option. But then I saw Oatmeal Cookies and just had to give them a try, 'cause you know, the oatmeal makes them healthy... right? Right:@)
I thought they were good and something a little different.
PS-Our friends at Nestle saw this post (such a small world:@) and wanted me to mention that there are recipes and a $1 coupon at facebook.com/raisinets. So stop by if you'd like!

Oatmeal Cookies with Raisinets
1/2 C butter, softened
3/4 C brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 C A/P flour
1 C oatmeal (not instant)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt-I added less
1 (7oz) package Raisinets
1/2 C walnuts, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream the butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Add egg, mix well.
  3. Add flour, oatmeal, baking soda and salt, mix well.
  4. Stir the Raisinets and walnuts in by hand.
  5. Drop by rounded Tblsp onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for approx 10-12 minutes.
  6. Let sit on cookie sheet for two minutes before removing to cooling rack.
  7. Makes 2 dozen cookies.
Have a happy day:@)

  7. Those cookies look like they are waiting for someone with a big glass of cold milk! Since they're oatmeal, surely they would be good for breakfast, wouldn't they?-----Shannon

  16. Raisinettes? Raisins covered in chocolate. Oh yes, that will work for me. This seems so obvious now. Why wouldn't chocolate make the raisins in the cookies sooooo much better. Thanks for the recipe and idea.
