You are going to think I am crazy, but I am not a fan of chocolate chip cookies. They are fine. I feel like I make a good one, but if you gave me a choice I would always pick an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie or a Peanut Butter Cookie. This is my go-to Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe. The trick with this recipe is to soak the raisins beforehand! Trust me you will notice the difference.
How to make Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
You will need:
- 3 Eggs
- 1 ½ – 2 cups of Raisins
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 1 cup Softened Butter (Sweet Cream, Salted)
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 cup White Sugar
- 2 ½ cups Flour
- 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
- 2 cups Oatmeal
- Cookie Sheets
- Food Scale
- Cookie Cooling Rack
First, prepare the raisins. Whisk three eggs in a small bowl. Add one cup of raisins to the eggs. Add the vanilla. Then still the raisin/egg mixture until the raisins are fully covered. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Flash forward one hour! Now you are ready to mix the rest of the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie dough. Cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix until thoroughly incorporated. Prepare the dry ingredients by adding salt, baking soda and cinnamon to the flour. Add dry ingredients to the creamed butter and sugar, one cup at a time. This is a little different than most cookie recipes, but you add the egg, vanilla and raisin mixture to the cookie dough AFTER the flour. Finally, add the oatmeal to the cookie dough mixture.
Using a food scale, we measured 2.5 oz. of cookie dough for each cookie.
Bake cookies in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
