Makes about 30

3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup chocolate covered raisins
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Mix together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Layer ingredients in order given in a quart size wide mouth canning jar. Press each layer firmly in place making sure you really pack it down before you add the flour mixture, it will be a tight fit but it will work.

Excellent cookies. Everyone I know begs me to make them. Definitely recommend! 5 stars

My friends and family who have had these cookies say it's the best they've ever had. I do not use the parchment paper, only non-stick spray on an airbaked tray. The key (as with any cookie) is to not overcook and check them before the timer goes off. Highly recommend this recipe. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
I first baked these on parchment on a non stick baking sheet and they burned after 10 min. Then I tried parchment on an airbaked, and then just rolled them directly on the non stick pan. Both batches were flat and boring to the taste. I would not make these again. 2 stars

I found this recipe last week and I'm putting it in the recipe vault. This is definitely a keeper. Best oatmeal raisin cookies ever! 5 stars
