Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


Here’s what I love about these cookies. First off they make like 4 dozen cookies. Secondly, you can freeze them after they are baked. You can pop them in the microwave 30-40 seconds and they taste like they came out of the oven.

Here’s what I hated about the original recipe. It actually calls for two cups of sugar. One cup each of them. Honestly…that’s way too much sugar. I cut it in half ages ago and it still tastes just as good. It’s pretty great to be able to do that.


1 cup butter, soften

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

3 cups quick cooking oats

1 1/4 cup raisins

In a bowl cream butter and sugars together. Beat in eggs. Stir in vanilla. Separately, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir into butter mixture. Stir in raisins. Preheat oven to 375. Using a cookie scoop (small) scoop cookies onto a greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Flatten each cookie with a fork. Using finger tips sprinkle a little sugar on top. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Let cook on wire rack.
