Specialty Recipe

Wyoming's Best Oatmeal Cookies

Cookies, cakes, and other sweets were delicacies for the Governor while growing up on a farm near Wheatland, Wyoming. The second oldest of seven children, the Governor had a sweet tooth for oatmeal raisin cookies, and they remain the Governor's favorite treat today. This recipe was developed by the Governor's Mansion staff for Governor Geringer. The Governor himself can make a tasty batch of these cookies.

Ingredients
3 eggs, well beaten
1 cup raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups oatmeal

Combine eggs, raisins, and vanilla and let stand for one hour, covered with plastic wrap. Cream together butter and sugars. Add flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda to sugar mixture. Mix well; blend in egg-raisin mixture and oatmeal. Dough will be stiff. Drop by heaping teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet or roll into small balls and flatten slightly on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly brown.
