Ooey-Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

What you need: 

11/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon nutmeg and cinnamon
dash of cloves and allspice
1/2 pound (2 sticks ) soy margarine, softened
1 2/3 cup turbinado sugar
2 tablespoon molasses
Ener-G Egg Replacer for 2 eggs (I like en-er-gee)
3 cups thick cut (NOT instant) oats
11/2 cups raisins

What you do: 

Pre-heat oven to 350. Sift flour, baking powder, and spices into small bowl. In large bowl, with electric mixer, beat margarine until smooth. Add vegan sugar and molasses and beat until fluffy (3-5 minutes). Add egg substitute, continuing to beat for another minute. Add flour, little at a time, until all is incorporated. Using wooden spoon or spatula, fold in oats and raisins. Let sit in refrigerator for 15-45 minutes. Using a two tablespoon amount of dough, roll into ball in your hand. Place on greased cookie sheet. Let cook on center rack for 22-25 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for a few moments, then transfer to finish cooling (if you try to remove the cookies from the sheet too quickly, they will crumble.
I do not know the nutritional information for these cookies, but who cares? These are THE VERY BEST vegan cookies I have ever had. Big and chewy! Very un-vegan tasting! Enjoy!

Okay...I have a funny story to share that includes this recipe. It was one of those, "oops!!!" moments that turns out to be a wonderful test of...shall I say, creative genius?
I was well aware that I needed to grind the turbinado sugar fine...but had no idea what a pain in the arse this would be. Half way through my feeble grinding attempts (we're talkin' sugar in a bowl; trying to grind it down with a heavy olive oil bottle) I decided, you know what?!?! I don't really care if my cookies spread too much, because they're goin' in!!!
the cookies spread like mad and never really looked done. By the time I finally took them out, the raisins had turned into little plastic balls.
I had a bunch of cookie dough left to work with. I couldn't make cookies; what was I to do???
As I had already eaten quite a bit of the dough raw, I knew how dern tasty it is...
and then....a thought!
Soy Decadence ice cream...with the dough mixed in!!!
it was absolutely delicious.
if you're lookin' for something knew and fun....
make this dough exactly as the recipe states, without grinding the sugar,
and mix it in with ice cream!!!
