We love cookies in this house and we love them all! This homemade cookie is another delicious treat to add to your collection! These cookies are soft and chewy on the inside and have just a slight crisp edge. They are plump full of sweet raisins and have just a hint of cinnamon.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are #2 on my dad's favorite cookie list. It's a close second too, as he loves himself some chocolate chip cookies, but he also adores oatmeal raisin. Like I said, we love them all as long as it's in cookie form!
How to Make Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
You Will Need
- 1 cup salted butter, softened
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1-½ cups whole wheat flour
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- 1-½ cups raisins
Can I substitute all purpose flour?
Yes! You can use all purpose flour in place of the whole wheat. I chose to use whole wheat because I like the slight nutty flavor it gives to baked goods, plus a little extra whole grains in a sweet treat doesn't hurt.
Can I use quick cooking oats?
Yes you can, however the texture of your cookie will be different. You will have a slighter crisper cookie than a nice chewy one.
Can I freeze the cookies?
Absolutley! You can freeze the baked cookies in a freezer safe air tight container or zip top bag. You can also freeze the dough. I scoop the dough on a parchment lined pan and freeze for a couple hours. Then I place the dough in a freezer safe zip top bag. You will need to increase the baking time by 2-3 minutes if you are baking frozen dough.
Make the Cookies
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
Now, after you have gathered your ingredients, cream together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Then add in the vanilla and beat well.
Finally, make the cookies!!! Using a medium cookie scoop or a heaping tablespoon, drop cookies 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets.
Bake the cookies for 13-15 minutes just until the edges have turned golden brown. Let cookies cool on pan for a 2-3 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Eat! Enjoy!
