These. Were. Delicious.
For only making one batch, I sure did get a lot of feedback about them- I received a text, a phone call, and an email, all from different people, all saying how amazing the cookies were. Not to mention the in-person comments. Danae said, “these are as good as my grandma’s” (which is saying something, trust me).
^^^ This picture was attached to the email I mentioned above that we received from a friend- “We enjoyed the oatmeal cookie recipe. Put in coconut and chocolate chips. Took picture of Cole and neighbors enjoying them.”
A while back we posted a Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookie recipe, which was an absolute hit. So when Treat of the Month time rolled around, I decided to modify the original recipe a bit. Danae loves oatmeal raisin cookies, so I just added a cup of raisins and some cinnamon.
I didn’t think it was possible, but the modifications almost made the cookies better. The jury’s still out about that declaration though. I guess you’ll just have to try both versions and get back to me with your vote 🙂
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 whole eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 cups Old Fashioned oats
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350*. Beat together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping the bowl after each one. Mix together the flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a separate bowl and add it to the creamed mixture in 2 or 3 batches, mixing until just combined. Mix in the oats and raisins until just combined.
Scoop onto a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper spacing them a couple inches apart, and bake them for 12 – 13 minutes. Let them cool slightly on the pan then transfer to a plate or cooling rack.
Using my cookie scoop, I made 3 dozen cookies.
