   Cream butter and sugars until fluffy with electric mixer.  Beat in egg,
   vanilla and salt.
   
   By hand, stir in flour, a 1/4 cup at a time. Stir in oats.  (Add nuts
   and/or
   raisins now.)
   
   Crop by rounded teaspoons about 2 inches apart.  They will spread.  But if
   you want them thinner still, flatten each one with a glass bottom that’s
   been coated in granulated sugar.
   
   Bake at 350.
   About 12 minutes (not too dry!) but browned.
   Cool on wire rack.
   Yield: 3-4 dozen
   
   If raisins are dry, they will draw moisture from batter as they bake.  So
   use real fresh or plumb them with a little boiling water; drain.
