Directions:
Beat together margarine and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Stir in oats and raisins or dates; mix well. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls (or rounded tablespoon) onto ungreased cookie sheet flattening just a little. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. As with many cookies, the key to having them be done but still soft when cool is not over baking!

Personal Notes:
