gimme something sweet

who doesn't love cookies!! yummy buttery, crispy and chewy warm fresh the oven cookies... just one whiff of that intoxicating smell radiating from the oven is enough to send me over the edge...
ahh... i love them so... so when my hubs asked me to bake some up, i was in the kitchen in a flash... however, when i got there that's when the problem arose... what kind of cookies am i to bake...
so after poking around the pantry, i decided to go with some yummy oatmeal raisin cookies... hmmm... raisins... however i didn't just have good ol' plain sunmaids... i only had dark chocolate yogurt covered raisins... so much better!! and hmmm... what about some toffee bits... dude... killer f-ing cookies...
i went with the traditional quaker oatmeal raisin cookies... but put my own spin on them... i added more butter, used only brown sugar and only egg whites...

1 stick of butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quaker oats
1 cup raisins
1/3 cup of toffee bits
1. heat oven to 350°F.
2. in large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed until creamy
3. add eggs and vanilla; beat well
4. add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and mix well
5. add oats and raisins and toffee bits; mix well
6. drop dough by rounded tbsps onto cookie sheets
7. bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown, cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack
