I give these as Christmas gifts and take them to showers. They are a hit every time. Pecans will work, too, if black walnuts aren't available.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup margarine, softened

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup raisins

  • 1 cup black walnuts, coarsely ground

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 3 cups rolled oats

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Beat margarine and sugars, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. Sift and add to the egg mixture. Stir well.

  3. Grind the raisins up with 1 teaspoon of sugar until they are in small pieces--not mush! Stir in oats, nuts, raisins and mix well, drop by tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown. Cool 1 minute and remove to wire rack. When cool store in airtight container. NOTE: You can add butterscotch or chocolate pieces in place of the raisins.
