Oatmeal Chocolate Chip/Raisin Cookies

2 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
2 cups butter
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. soda
5 cups instant oatmeal
4-5 cups flour
3 cups chopped nuts (optional)
3 cups chocolate chips or raisins

1. In a large mixer bowl add sugar, eggs and butter and beat well.
2. Add salt, baking powder, vanilla and soda and mix well.
3. Add oatmeal and then flour. When that is all mixed up add chocolate chips (or raisins) and nuts. (I usually make half the dough with raisins and half with chocolate chips)
4. Drop by spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 ℉ for 6-8 minutes. This recipe makes about 8 dozen cookies.
