      o 1 1/4 cups rolled oats
      o 1 t baking powder
      o 1/2 cup raisins
      o 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Lightly oil a baking sheet or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine flour, oats and baking powder. Mix well. Add raisins.

In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients and mix well. Add to dry mixture, mixing until all ingredients are moistened. Shape dough into balls and place onto prepared baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Place a sheet of waxed paper over cookies and flatten them to 1/2 inch thick, using the bottom of a glass. Carefully remove waxed paper. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until bottoms of cookies begin to brown.

Makes about 21 cookies

The recipe itself tastes very delicious! I wonder, when this cookies will get baked, it will smell so sweet and wonderful. I am crazy for cheese layer which you mentioned that we can add, I guess increases the softness in the cafe. Too much mouth-watering one! Also, I like vanilla and orange/ lemon flavour, but as this is something new, gonna surely try for it.
