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.

  8. My husband will loves these cookies – oatmeal raisin are his favorite!

  9. Oatmeal raisin was my grandfather’s favorite cookie and mine as well. I used to make him a special batch at Christmas time. I remember once while he was at Christmas at my house he kept reaching into his pants pocket and then bringing something up to his mouth to nibble on. When I ask him what it was, he said it was one of my oatmeal cookies. He had put some in his pocket! Ha

    I found a great recipe for oatmeal cookies written in a church recipe cookbook that said letting the raisins sit in the eggs with a cover over them for about an hour will soften them up. It works well! :)

  10. Delicious! I am a big fan of oatmeal raisin cookies. My husband not so much. He prefers chocolate chip. One time I made oatmeal raisin for myself and he grabbed one and scarfed it down thinking it was chocolate chip! He was quite disappointed haha.

    I like your recipe photos! They look great :)

  11. I love oatmeal cookies, I think I like cranberries better than raisins though! =)

  14. I have not had oatmeal cookies for so long, and I just love them! These look delicious.

  15. Sometimes simple is better. Especially at this time of year where we all feel the need to get fancy.

  16. What a gorgeous site! And the cookies…oh my. Holiday baking awaits me on Saturday…this has provided me with some well needed inspiration.

  17. Those look good. I’ve finished a broccoli soup, a chive batter bread and my chex mix, so I think cookies and biscotti will be on the agenda soon. yum.

  18. Hey Kathrine! this is my personal favorite cookie, except I throw in a handful of dates. Mmm mmm good!

  19. I love oatmeal cookies and I never thought of using craisins instead of raisins (because I do not like raisin, but love craisins). Great tip!
