Best Damn Cookies Ever!

Who knew an oatmeal raisin cookie could be more desireable then chocolate chip...but this recipe does me in...

½ cup butter or margarine
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg - beaten
1¼ cups quick cooking rolled oats
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1½ tsp cinnamon
1½ tsp vanilla extract
½ cup raisins
(My son hates raisins so I cook one sheet without then put the ½ cup in after. I have some dried blueberries from Costco I want to try...but I'm too afraid to do it...I'll eat the whole batch.)

Preheat oven to 350°.
Cream together butter and sugars till fluffy and then mix in beaten egg.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Drop on ungreased cookie sheet (I always use parchment paper) allowing 1 inch space between cookies.
Bake in oven 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
Yes...I'm that lame...I took a photo since I just happened to have some baked!

Yummmm!!!! Will have to try these -- with the blueberries as I'm not a raisin fan. I have a bag of those Costco blueberries right now. (Of course, I always throw in a bag of choc chips when an oatmeal cookie recipe calls for raisins. They sort of look alike.
