  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, cream together well the butter and brown and white sugar. Add the eggs and beat about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and spices and blend well. Add the milk to the batter.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda and add one-third of this dry mixture at a time to the wet mixture blending well. Add the oats and work into the batter. Finally, add the nuts, dates, and raisins.

Using a spring-form scoop, dollop the batter on to a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Do not crowd cookies giving about 2-3” space between each. Bake in preheated 350°F oven about 10 minutes. Repeat with all the batter. Let cool and eat.

(Note: These also make a cute mini-muffin using cupcake liners if you want.)
