Oatmeal Orange Raisin Cookies

This is a nice twist on your standard oatmeal cookie. It is lighter and the orange zest gives it an additional depth of flavor that surprises people. I like to use golden raisins because they are juicier and plumper than standard raisins. I usually make a double batch, and sorry the ingredients are all in metric, but it's a French recipe. Enjoy!

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
