in my world, crisp air necessitates warm sweets. period.
here are my three favorites for the week:

(complete with 12 year old handwritting;
I recommend warming the cream cheese and beating before adding the wet ingredients.
I also add raisins; between 1/2 and 3/4s a cup.)

I've had five people ask me for it in the last month.
so you know it's good.

Beat together 2 sticks of butter, 1 cup of brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of white
Add 2 eggs and 1 tsp of vanilla.

In a separate bowl, mix 1 1/2 cup of flour, 1 tsp baking soda,
1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of nutmeg.

Add to wet mixture. Stir in 3 cups of oats and 2 cups of raisins.
Bake in greased pan (butter, not spray) at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
