Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Recipe: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies by Jolinda Hacket,
3/4 cup vegan margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup soymilk
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins
3 cups rolled quick cooking oatmeal
Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat together sugar, brown sugar, vegan margarine and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Add the soymilk and mix until combined. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and spices, and stir until well mixed. Add the remaining ingredients. Batter will be very thick. Drop 3" balls onto cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until done. Cookies will be slightly soft and chewy.

My Own Variations: I used all quick cooking oatmeal and made about 1" balls (instead of 3") and didn't flatten on the cookie sheet. I baked for exactly 12 minutes. I made approximately 8 cookies without walnuts. Served with plain soymilk.

I will probably use a little less nutmeg and cloves next time, the spices seem to overpower the cookie a little bit. The walnuts are a must for this recipe - the ones without looked like oatmeal raisin pancakes instead! The omnivore family loved the cookies and said they couldn't even tell they were made without animal products! (Victory = Mine!!)
