Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are hard to beat. Their edges are crisp, their flavor is buttery sweet and their texture is wonderfully soft and chewy. It is loaded with hearty oatmeal and raisins with that 'can't resist' homemade flavor. Good luck with trying to convince people that you actually did make these!

- Unsalted Butter - 1 cup, room temperature
- Brown Sugar - 1 cup
- Granulated White Sugar - 1/3 cup
- Eggs - 2 large
- Vanilla extract - 1 Tsp
- All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup
- Baking soda - 1 Tsp
- Salt - 1 Tsp
- Ground cinnamon - 1/2 Tsp
- Old fashioned rolled oats - 3 cups
- Dark or golden raisins - 1 cup
- Preheat your oven to 180 degree C (350 degree F). Line baking sheet with a parchment paper or you can simply butter your baking sheet or spray them with a non-stick cooking spray.
- In a bowl of your electric mixture (or with a hand mixture), beat the butter until smooth. Then add the brown and white sugars and beat until creamy and smooth (about 2-3 minutes). Scrape down the sides of your bowl as needed.
- Then add 1 egg and beat until it's mixed into the batter and then beat in the second egg along with the vanilla extract.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon. Add this mixture to the batter and beat until incorporated. Stir in the rolled oats and raisins.
- Scoop out the dough with a standard ice-cream scoop or with the hands and place six cookies on parchment lined baking sheet.
- Flatten the cookies slightly until they are about 1/2 inch thick.
- Bake the cookies for about 14-16 minutes rotating the cookie sheet half way through the baking time. The cookies are done when golden brown around the edges but still a little soft in the center (The longer the cookies back the more crispy they will be).
- Remove from oven and let the cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
- These cookies will keep several days at room temperature.
- If you like, you can replace the raisins with an equal amount of dried cranberries or cherries, chopped nuts or even chocolate chips.
