Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Forget the cookies, just eat the dough!
Seriously. THIS DOUGH IS AMAZING!
All these years I thought I hated Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, wrong, I was wrong, I just prefer them in dough form.
The cooked ones are pretty darn tasty too, but, the dough….YUM!
I was also shocked that my kids liked them so much, I had just assumed that they had inherited my Oatmeal Raisin Cookie aversion and would turn their noses up to them, but again, I was wrong.
They loved them, and with all the oatmeal and raisin these cookies offer in every bite, I was happy to them chowing down on the finished products.
I have a feeling this Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe will be made often at our house and I am glad I finally found a place in my foodie heart for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.
- 1 cup softened butter, I prefer salted
- 1¼ cup light brown sugar, do not pack
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tbsp Vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1½ teaspoons cinnamon,
- ¼ tsp salt, ½ tsp if you use unsalted butter
- 1½ cups flour, I used 1 cup whole Wheat and ½ cup all purpose
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup raisins, (you can soak them in boiling water to plump them if you like, but I didn't bother with this step)
- In a mixer cream the butter, and brown sugar, add the eggs and vanilla and continue mixing until well combined
- Add baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, Mix well
- Add flour, and Oatmeal and continue to mix, Add raisins in as the flour and oatmeal mix together.
- Refrigerate dough for up to 30 minutes before cooking if desired.
- Use a cookie scoop to drop dough onto greased cookies sheets. (or Roll dough into small dough balls with your hands) Place dough balls 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes or until cookies are just starting to brown on the edges, they will look slightly doughy in the center. That is how they should look, Take them out and allow them to sit on the baking dish for a couple minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
recipe adapted from the Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction :I used salted butter, switched out the white sugar and molasses for more brown sugar, and used whole wheat flour.
