I found this amazing Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe in the Joy of Cooking (my favourite cookbook ever!).
These cookies are so soft. So chewy. So delicious!
I think it’s the boiling and chopping up of the raisins that make this cookie so good!
And they’re perfect for lunches because they’re nut free and hearty!
These are so tasty! Great for after school snacks with a glass of milk!
I love this recipe as well because it makes a huge batch of cookies!
A lot for eating, a lot for freezing for later! Gotta love that!
1 cup butter or margarine 1 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 2 1/2 tsp vanilla 1 3/4 cup flour 3/4 tsp baking soda 3/4 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp nutmeg
Measure 1 cup raisins. Chop them up, and boil them in water for 1-2 minutes. Set aside to cool. Drain. In a bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a separate bowl beat together the margarine, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Combine flour mix and butter mix. Then add 3 1/2 cups oats (old fashioned rolled oats make a chunkier cookie, instant oats make a more chewy cookie) Add cooled raisins. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 6-9 minutes.
