Anytime Oatmeal Cookies
Makes about 2 dozen.
I know it's the week before Thanksgiving and we should have turkey on the brain, but most foodies are probably distracted by thoughts of Christmas cookies. So here's a classic to add to your to-bake list. They're good.

1 cup cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon salt into a bowl. Beat butter and sugars until pale and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla, then flour mixture. Mix in oats, then raisins.
Using a 1 1/4-inch ice cream scoop (or 1 tablespoon), drop dough onto baking sheets, spacing each scoop about 2 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden, about 14 minutes. Let cookies cool on a wire rack.
