Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Nothing is better than a batch of freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookies.

You can’t beat freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookies. The smell is fantastic and the taste is even better. A great oatmeal cookie must be moist, have a deep almost caramel like flavor (from the use of brown sugar) and a strong, yet not overwhelming spice note. These hit all the marks and are so easy to make. Baking is an exact science in most cases but this recipe leaves room for error. Better yet, it always yields soft cookies with a bit of chew. Whether you put a little too much cinnamon, overdo it on the butter or find yourself a little short on oats, the cookies will be just as good.

Ingredients

Makes 10-12 cookies

  • ½ tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups quick oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Handful of raisins
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with foil or parchment.
  2. Combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt. These are your dry ingredients.
  3. Add the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer.
  4. Mix for about 2 minutes or until a creamy texture is achieved.
  5. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Beat until the egg is incorporated (this should take no more than 30 seconds).
  6. Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the creamed egg and sugar. Mix until just combined.
  7. Gently fold in the raisins. Feel free to add more if you like.
  8. Drop spoonfuls of the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. At this point in the recipe you can also leave the cookie dough in the refrigerator for a few hours to firm up if you wish.
  9. Place into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  11. Eat.

These cookies are awesome and so versatile. You can eat them as is, make ice cream sandwiches, crumble them on top of yogurt, or chill in the fridge to enjoy at a later time. When cold, the flavors develop even further and they become little chewy oatmeal breakfast treats that you can take with you to work or school.
