Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

2 medium apples, peeled, diced {I used granny smith}
1 cup {2 sticks} unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1 cup raisins
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 cup oats, old fashioned or quick cooking
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs and the vanilla. Stir until nice and smooth. Set aside.

In another bowl combine the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt. Slowly add the dry mixture into the wet and stir until just combined. Do not over mix. Next, stir in the raisins and apple bits. Chill for 30 minutes.

Using a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop, drop cookie dough on to a lined cookie sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes until the cookies are lightly browned. If you like cookies on the crisp side add another minute or two.

Remove the cookies from the oven and cool on a wire rack before placing then in an airtight container.

This recipe makes 4 dozen cookies.
