Outrageous Oatmeal Cookies

1 ½ c old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
½ c all-purpose flour
¼ c dark raisins
¼ c golden raisins
¼ c dried cranberries
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
½ c packed dark brown sugar
¼ c granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
4 Tbsp dark raisins (topping)
4 Tbsp golden raisins (topping)

Preheat oven to 350. Blend together oats, flour, raisins, cranberries, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg, cinnamon and vanilla; beat until combined. Gradually add oat mixture; beat until combined. Combine raisins for toping in separate bowl and set aside. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto two baking sheets. Place 1 mounded teaspoon of raisins on top of dough. Bake until cookies are golden brown but still soft, 12 to 16 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on sheets; transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
