A Centered, Peaceful, Sweet, But Not Fake, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

I took this fun little quiz to see what they thought my personality is and to share with you. I think it's pretty accurate too, and it is one of my favorite cookies. So, I'm also sharing my own recipe with you. ;-) What's YOUR favorite kind of cookie? I know, I know, it's hard to pick just one, so you can tell me several of your favorites.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1/2 Cup butter
1 Egg
2 Tablespoons pure vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons milk
1 Cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Cup uncooked quick rolled oats
3/4 Cup raisins
1/2 Cup chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat your over to 350 degrees. Blend both sugars and cream with butter. Add egg, vanilla, milk and beat until smooth. Sift flour, soda, baking powder, salt and add to previous ingredients, beating until smooth. Add oats, raisins and chocolate chips and mix well. Drop cookie dough about 2 inches apart on your cookie sheet and bake until light brown. This recipe will make about 3 dozen small cookies.
