The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

So last week Austin asked me to bake Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  Believe it or not, that’s not been a cookie I’ve ever made before.  We’re big on Sugar Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies, and Chocolate Chip Cookies, but not Oatmeal Raisin.

So I jumped online to find an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe.  I picked a random one and went to work.

Oh my goodness!  These were the MOST INCREDIBLE COOKIES I’ve ever made!  Serious.  Mark and the boys thought so, too!  They’ve asked me to make them over and over again!

I’m staying with Matt and Anne for a few days and I can promise you I’ll be making a batch or two for them, too!

Since they were so good I thought I’d share the recipe with you!

The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Blend together with electric mixer:
1-1/4 c. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar (I used the Splenda brown sugar blend)
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Add in with mixer:
1-1/2 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Stir in:
3 c. quick oats
1 c. raisins (I add a little more than a cup)

Bake 13-14 minutes at 375 degrees.  Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, then move to cooling rack.  Enjoy!

  1. Jill, these would probably be great oatmeal scotchies too, just substitute butterscotch chips for the raisins. MMMMMMM
