My favorite oatmeal raisin cookies! 

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly butter cookie sheets or use silicone sheets.
  2. Cream the butter and brown sugar and a large mixer bowl. Beat in the honey and eggs until smooth.
  3. Sift the flour, cinnamon, and salt together. Stir into the butter mixture.
  4. Using a Cuisinart in batches add the oats, pecans, raisins, dates, pulse until well mixed. Add to butter mixture and stir until well mixed.
  5. Shape the dough into 2-inch balls. Place about 9 balls on each cookie sheet and then flatten each one with the palm of your hand to make large cookies.
  6. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Immediately remove the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
