Apple Raisin Oatmeal Bikkies

We were given this recipe by some of our American friends. It is one recipe we don't have to multiply as it makes a HUGE load of biscuits/cookies. Apparently trying to reduce the recipe doesn't work. This picture shows about half the total! But they will last long enough for a few days of hungry children.
You will need a LARGE bowl for mixing.

Ingredients & Method:
Cream together the following:
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 6 sticks butter (3 cups!)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3 cups white sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup apple sauce

Then add these to the creamed mix:
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 4 cups Plain/all purpose flour
- 4 tsp baking powder

Blend/mix in the following:
- 12 cups oatmeal (Not quick cooking oats)
- 1 lb. (500 gm) raisins

Cook at around 350F/180C till they are golden brown (about 10 to 15 minutes)

Use sultanas/golden raisins, choc chips, dried fruit, whatever.
Very tasty.
Probably NOT a Weight Watchers recipe.
(Lana has just reminded me - we need more butter.)
