Megnificent Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

In all the world of cookies, there is not one that I love more than the classic oatmeal raisin. Between the heartiness of the oatmeal, warm spices of the cinnamon and nutmeg, and chewiness of the plump raisins, this cookie just cannot be beat in my book.

I have spent more than six months trying to create the perfect recipe. I have tried every oatmeal raisin cookie recipe I could get my hands on, so now I must pass along my creation to you!

Megnificent Oatmeal Raisin Cookies




Ingredients:

- 2 sticks unsalted butter (softened - not melted)
- 1 cup golden brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon authentic vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 3 cups quick oats
- 1 cup golden raisins
- 1 cup regular raisins



Directions:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2) Cream together the butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and beat liquid mix well.

2) In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, soda, salt and spices. Slowly add the dry mixture to the liquid mixture and mix well.

3) Stir oats and raisins into the dough, mixing well.

4) Scoop dough in medium spoonfulls onto a cookie sheet (I always use a Silpat when baking. Perfect cookies guaranteed!). Bake for exactly 10 minutes.

5) Cookies will not look fully done when removing them from the over. Let the cookies set-up on the cookie sheet for only 1-2 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.


After setting-up for just a few minutes, these cookies are warm, chewy and full of juicy raisins - yum! Grab a fresh glass of milk and enjoy!

Bon Appetit!

  3. Made these cookies this evening since oatmeal raisin is my hubbys fav. Didn't have any pumpkin pie spice so just used nutmeg, but will get pumpkin pie spice for next time.
    They were yummy!!
