Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is the recipe on the Quaker Oats package, and it's so good. Perfectly chewy, soft and delicious. The dough might be better than the actual cookie, but it's debatable. You'll have to try them for yourself. Thanks Sara for the tip.

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt, (optional)
3 cups oats
1 cup raisins or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine and add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir in oats and raisins/chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes; until golden brown. Cool 1 min on cookie sheet, transfer to wire rack. (About 4 dozen cookies.) I have noticed with cookies that I always should take them out before I think they are done. I've made these twice recently and the first time I overcooked them because I was waiting for them to be more brown. Don't do that! Check them at 9 minutes just in case. Don't overcook them.
