Greatest oatmeal raisin cookies of all time

I finally got around to creating a recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies. Here it is, enjoy.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 1 stick (8 tbsp) salted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla (real vanilla is best)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup whole oats
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix butter and sugar at medium speed until pasty. Add egg and vanilla, mix together at medium speed until creamy. Stir in cinnamon, baking soda, salt, flour, and oats. Add raisins and nuts. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls about 2” apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 11 minutes.  Let cool slightly before removing from baking sheet. Yields approximately 24 cookies. Enjoy!

I live in high altitude so this recipe has been adjusted accordingly. If you try it and they don’t seem right, try reducing the flour a little or adding a little more butter (coconut oil works great too).
