I’m not a baker so I was very careful with this recipe I adapted from foodtv.com. It was very involved but I had fun rolling the dough like clay.

2 cups of oatmeal
2 cups of flour
1 cup of raisins
2 sticks of unsalted butter, melted for a few seconds in the microwave
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp hot water
2 tsps vanilla extract
1 tsp salt

1. Preheat oven to 350º. In the meantime, brush a cookie sheet with some of the melted butter. Set aside.
2. Use the remaining butter and combine with the sugars in a mixing bowl and cream with an electric mixer. Add the eggs. Mix in oatmeal, flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt with a big spoon. Add water, raisins and vanilla extract. Mix well to finish your dough.
3. Transfer the dough to a floured kitchen counter or table. Form a snake with your dough using your hands. Cut in several small pieces and place on prepared cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until light brown. Let them cool before serving.
