Wheatley's Oatmeal Cookies

I had Matt & Julianne Wheatley over for dinner once and they brought the most divine oatmeal cookies I've ever had. I've always been looking for that perfect oatmeal cookie recipe and this is finally it! When Julianne sent it over, she said that it was Mrs. Fields' recipe, but I'm hear-by renaming them after this great family.

Mix together:

4 c. flour
5 c. oatmeal
1 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
2 t. baking soda

In a separate bowl, cream together:

2 c. butter
2 c. sugar
2 c. brown sugar


4 eggs
2 t. vanilla

Mix in dry ingredients and then add:

12 oz. chocolate chips
3 c. nuts (optional)
1 lb. raisins (optional)

Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Yields approximately 100 cookies.
