Blend together butter and sugars. Beat in eggs, one at a time; stir in extract. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; stir flour mixture into butter mixture. Mix in oats; fold in raisins. Form dough into walnut-size balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
These cookies were easy, moist, and delicious. I substituted vanilla in place of almond extract, and added 1/2 finely chopped pecans. I also found that if I left the dough in balls, the baked cookies were a little hard. They turned out much softer simply by slightly flattening the dough balls before baking. And remember to spray the cookie sheet to prevent sticking.
