Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup boiling water
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon each cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup nuts
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Pour boiling water over the raisins, butter or margarine, and sugar. Cool, then mix in beaten eggs. Add the remaining ingredients. Drop by teaspoonful on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

Testing comment: I tested this on my extended family and they all like the cookies, as did I. However, I prefer my recipe that calls for a little more margarine in proportion to the other ingredients.

Thank you so much for all the recipes using oats. My Mom used to make Matrimonial Cake and Oatmeal Cake with Boiled Icing all the time, when I was a kid.:)
