Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

WARNING...The following recipe makes 12 1/2 dozen cookies. If you are not interested in spending hours in the kitchen....cut down the recipe. Other than that, this was a delightful cookie. I found the recipe in my new The Best Loved Cookies and Bars Taste of Home magazine. I omitted the raisins and used mini chocolate chips instead of regular ones. I found that 11 minutes was the perfect time in my oven. Enjoy!

2 cups butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 cups quick-cooking oats
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
2-1/2 cups raisins
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 cup flaked coconut

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in water and vanilla. Combine the oats, flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. (Transfer to a larger bowl if necessary.) Stir in the raisins, chocolate chips, walnuts and coconut.
Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 12-1/2 dozen.
