2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon each: baking powder, salt
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup each: granulated sugar, packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups quick-cooking oats (not instant)
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 12 minutes per batch

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and
salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

Beat the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer until softened. Beat in
sugars until well blended. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, blending well
after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Fold in the flour mixture with a rubber spatula. Blend 5 seconds with the mixer on low. The batter will be
thick. Stir in the oats, raisins and nuts.

Drop by rounded tablespoonful onto ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheets 2 inches apart. (For smaller cookies, drop by the teaspoonful.) Bake
until lightly browned and edges are set, 12-15 minutes.

Cool cookie sheets on a wire cake rack 1-2 minutes. Gently remove the cookies from the sheets to the rack; cool completely.
