I don’t know about you guys, but one of my FAVORITE cookies happens to be Oatmeal Raisin. Unfortunately for me they are not a huge hit in my house. I can not explain to you the level of sadness I feel in my heart over this. HAHAHA Normally I don’t make anything my family doesn’t like or won’t eat. However, this time I was bound and determined to find a way to bake an oatmeal cookie that everyone would love and enjoy. This recipe is it. SO good that even my son’s best friend who loathes oatmeal cookies, also LOVES this recipe! So, let’s get on to making these phenomenal cookies!
* 1 cup butter (softened)
* 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 1 cup oats (regular oats used for baking NOT instant oats)
* 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
* 1/2 cup raisins
Beat butter in your mixer until it is fluffy….. then add brown sugar and mix well until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well.
Don’t forget to allow your toddler to be in charge of quality control and get a free taste test!
And don’t forget his side-kick/assistant either!
Back to the batter!
In a separate bowl, add your flour, baking soda and salt. Add to mixture and mix until well blended.
Add oats. Mix well.
Add chocolate chips and raising and mix on low until well blended.
Scoop cookie dough using a cookie scoop or drop by tablespoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before placing them onto a cookie rack to finish cooling. ENJOY!
