In a baking mood.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup softened butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. pure almond extract
3 cups oatmeal
2 cups unbleached flour
 1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped walnuts (or any nut)
2 cups raisins

Beat the sugars, eggs and butter until creamy.  On top of creamy mixture put the 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  If you wish, you can add a bit of ground cinnamon, about 1/2 tsp.  Gently mix with a fork or clean fingers to incorporate the dry ingredients.  Put in the rest of the ingredients and mix with a clean hand or if you prefer, use a wooden spoon to mix together thoroughly.

Drop by teaspoon on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Cool on racks.
