Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

Hello, hungry ones!

oats

How are your holiday plans? Are you planning to give homemade treats as gifts? Because that would be sweet (meaning, I want that), just not oatmeal cookies. Why? Because I always make them and I think mine is the best! Haha! It’s chewy, dark and really heavy. Started to make these when I was ten and I never looked back since!

What’s your favorite cookie?

What you need:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 2  eggs
  • 1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup nuts (optional)

What to do:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer (or using a hand mixer) beat together the butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time.

3. Mix together the flour, salt,  cinnamon and baking soda in a medium sized bowl. Add it into the creamed mixture in 2 to 3 batches, mixing it until just combined. Mix in the oats.

4. Use your preferred size cookie scoop (or a regular spoon) to drop portions of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until dark and chewy. If you’d like a crispier cookie, bake it for a bit – just don’t burn it!

5. Let them cool slightly then transfer the cookies onto a plate for serving. Get your glass of milk ready too!
