Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are chewy and nutritious- give my recipe a try… they’re great as a snack, or for breakfast too!
Prep time: 1 hour
2 sticks softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 extra large eggs
18 ounces (1 pound 2 ounces) rolled oats
2 cups raisins
1 cup unbleached flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt- set aside.
Cream together the butter, sugars, and vanilla. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the eggs- mix until incorporated.
Add the oats and blend just until all of the ingredients come together.
Add the flour mixture- mix for 30 seconds.
Add the raisins- mix for an additional 30 seconds.
Drop by the tablespoon onto a greased cookies sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges become brown.
Let cool for 5 minutes, then serve!
