oatmeal-cookies.md: New recipe

So much tastier, maybe because of the increased cinnamon, vanilla,
and oats. The baking time is a bit long, so I usually set the timer
for 15 minutes and check them.

Makes: 24
## Ingredients
- 1 3/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 sticks unsalted butter, softened (140g?)
- 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup raisins
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1½ teaspoons fine sea salt
- 1½ sticks slightly softened butter
- 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
- 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 cups old-fashioned or rolled oats
- 1 extra-large egg
- 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
## Method
Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C. Grease baking sheets.
Preheat oven to 350°F/176°C. Grease baking sheets or use baking paper.
Stir together oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Beat together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a large bowl with a fork or an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined well. Add oat mixture and beat until just combined.
1. Soak raisins in hot water for 30 minutes, then drain.
2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, sift together flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
3. Using an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, scraping down frequently. Take care not to overbeat.
4. Add flour mixture to creamed butter and sugar and mix on low speed until combined. Mix in oats, followed by drained raisins, egg and vanilla.
5. Use a ¼-cup measure to scoop dough onto a parchment-paper lined baking sheet. Flatten each blob with base of measuring cup.
6. To bake cookies: Bake until cookies are golden-brown on the outside but still soft in the middle, about 17 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest on baking sheet a few minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool.
Drop dough by heaping tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets and flatten mounds slightly with moistened fingers. Bake cookies in upper and lower thirds of oven, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until golden, about 12 minutes total. Transfer to racks to cool.

## Notes
Original recipe says to cover and chill the dough in the refrigerator for a few days, but I don't do that.
