Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

fresh and warm from the oven


Monday morning and all the goodies are gone. Some of you can identify. Those of us who pack lunches know that you score higher if you have some kind of goodies to put in those lunches ☺ sooooo...

I was looking through my cupboard a few days ago and found some raisins I had forgotten about so this morning I decided to make these Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. The cinnamon and raisins together compliment each other and make these soft chewy cookies a special treat.

Preheat oven to 350°.
Prepare baking pans by lining with parchment paper or lightly spraying with non stick spray.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups quick oats
1 cup raisins
Additional sugar and cinnamon, for dipping

Beat the butter and sugars in a mixer until fluffy.

Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.

In a seperate bowl, combine the next four ingredients and mix together.

Add to the butter mixture and mix well, scraping sides and bottom to insure thorough and even mixing.

Add the quick oats.

Mix well again and add the raisins.

Mix again, scraping sides and bottom.

Using a size 40 cookie scoop, place into cinnamon/sugar mixture and roll till completely coated.

Place onto prepared baking sheets and flatten slightly.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about a minute before removing from the baking sheet.

Makes approximately 40 cookies.

Be Blessed!
