Preheat oven to 375° F.

In a small saucepan, bring oats and water to a boil.  Reduce heat to simmer and stir for 10 minutes.  Remove pan from heat and fold in raisins.  Allow mixture to cool.  Lightly grease two baking sheets. 

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar.  Add egg and vanilla beating until smooth.  In a separate bowl, blend dry ingredients together.  Add dry ingredients to creamed ingredients mixing well.  Fold in softened oats, raisins and nuts.  Using a large spoon, drop cookie dough onto prepared baking sheet evenly spacing to allow for spreading.
