A new week ahead , I hope you all had a great weekend. I am happy to say I spent the weekend creating a blog makeover and new headers for clients! As promised on Friday, I am sharing my husband’s absolute favorite cookies. Oatmeal raisin cookies! Perfect for the holidays or any day ( a nice neighbor gift too) Perfect for a cookie swap too ( see my old cookie swap post HERE!
What You Need
3 Cups oatmeal (uncooked) I use Quaker quick oats
1 Cup butter, unsalted and softened
3/4 Cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/2 Cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1 1/2 Cups flour
1 tsp. Baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/4 Cup raisins
Baking sheet ( un greased)
Before You Start: Preheat oven to 350°
Lets Make It! Combine butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer on medium speed mix until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and continue mixing. Gradually add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and continue mixing until well combined. Add oatmeal and mix until well combined. Remove bowl from mixer and add raisins. Using a large spoon mix well to blend raisins into dough. Drop dough by rounded tablespoon full onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet for a minute or two and then move to cooling rack.
