Recipe: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

We love cookies… especially Oatmeal Raisin Cookies….. actually they’re Warren’s favorite. This recipe has been tweeked over the years…. it’s a basic recipe… probably hundreds just like it….my original recipe called for only shortening… I then went to butter flavored shortening… then I split the shortening quantity in two and used half butter…. the result is a buttery cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookie…..

I doubt they will last until Christmas…. well maybe if I hide some…but at least the house smells wonderful…. I love this time of year!


Recipe: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

All you need:

1 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter flavored shortening
1 stick ( ½ cup of butter), softened
½ cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
1 cup raisins

All you need to do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, stir until well incorporated. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, butter flavored shortening, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until smooth.

Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture with the mixer on low.

Add the oats and raisins and stir until well mixed.

Using a medium sized melon ball scoop, scoop the cookie dough onto the parchment lined cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE otherwise the cookies will be dry.

Let them cool for 2-3 minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer them to a baking rack. Cool completely.

Store in an airtight container.
