Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Sometimes there is just a certain cookie that you really want, but every time you try to make them, life gets in the way. I've been meaning to make these cookies for a LONG time, and every time I would get the butter out to soften, it would have to go right back into the fridge.

Well thank goodness I finally made them. Because wow. These are by far the BEST oatmeal raisin cookies ever.


You hear me? Ever!

Ok, I'll stop.

The recipe came from the authority - Mr. Quaker Oats himself. Seriously! The recipe is under the lid! How convenient!

Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Source: Quaker Oats

1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 cup raisins

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
