  1. Grandma Woodall's Marmalade Cookies

  2. Grandma preferred Robertson's Thick Cut marmalade - she said it gives them that extra zip! Adjust the spices if you like, using more or less of each to suit your taste. If you choose to use fresh grated ginger (I do) - add it to the butter-sugar mixture.

  3. 1 cup all-purpose flour

  4. 1 1/4 cups oats

  5. 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  6. 1/2 tsp. baking soda

  7. 1/2 tsp. salt

  8. 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  9. 1/2 tsp. ground ginger (or 1 tsp. grated fresh)

  10. 1/4 tsp. nutmeg

  11. 1/3 cup butter, softened

  12. 1/2 cup sugar

  13. 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  14. 1 large egg

  15. 1 tsp. vanilla

  16. 1 cup raisins

  17. 1/3 cup marmalade

  18. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  19. In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg; set aside.

  20. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugar and brown sugar until well combined - it will have the consistency of wet sand. Beat in the egg and vanilla until smooth.

  21. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir by hand until almost combined; add the raisins and marmalade, and stir just until blended.

  22. 2" apart (they spread larger and flatter than normal drop cookies do) on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until deep golden all over. Cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  23. Makes 2 dozen cookies.
