Personal Notes:
Prepare your cookie sheet according to the type you have.
Plain sheet pans need to be coated with shortening of some
type. If you use the new cookie sheet liners, they do not need
to be treated. I use quick oats instead of rolled oats. These are
my all time favorite oatmeal-raisin cookies.
