brown sugar oatmeal cookies

...or should i call these 'apple golden raisin brown sugar oatmeal cookies'? because that's what they are. and they're delicious.

2 sticks butter, softened (all i had was salted)
2 cups dark brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp fresh nutmeg
1 tsp salt
3 cups old-fashioned oats (not quick-cooking)
1 cup golden raisins
1 tart apple, peeled and chopped

preheat oven to 350' and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

beat together the butter and brown sugar until creamy and lightened in color. add in the eggs and vanilla.

in another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda & powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. add to the butter mixture and beat until just combined.

add in oats, raisins, and apple and beat again until just combined.

with a medium-sized ice cream scoop or disher, scoop out 12 cookies per sheet. use your fingers to slightly press down the dough balls.

bake pans separately for 10-12 minutes or until set but not too browned! makes about 3 dozen good-sized cookies.
