I found this recipe a few years back...and it's the best you will ever find! Thank you to the person who posted this very special cookie. Many have tried to figure out how...it's the soaked raisins! On of my bosses calls me the cookie goddess...heck, I'll take it!
These were okay--not "over the top" for me. More cakey than I expected, especially with 2 sticks of butter. I cut the sugar in 1/2 which seemed to work well.
This recipe is wonderful. I made these last night for DH to take on his business trip this week, knowing that I and DD's don't like raisins. Well..... after tasting the cookies, we LOVED THEM. Even with the raisins in them they are the best cookies. I love how chewy and gooey they are with a great flavor. So, not sure if the first batch will make it and I will have to make another before tomorrow! ha ha Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe that we all love.
These rock! Yum!
My husband said they rated a 3.75 - good, not great.
I wanted to make a special cookie batch for a class I'm attending for sustainable agriculture, so looked for "best oatmeal cookie recipe."! Well, this came up, and looked good as a starter point. I used about a cup of spiced rum plus water to soak the dried fruit and nuts I used - pecan, black and white raisin, date pieces, pineapple, and caramel bits. YUM! I used the baking soda, since baking powder contains aluminum, which is directly related to Alzheimer's Disease. I also used coconut oil for 1/2 the butter, about 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses, dehydrated cane juice cones, and whole wheat flour, plus lots of oats! AND, I froze the cookies before baking! -chewier-
Sorry, these were just okay for us. Thanks
These cookies are perfect! The only mistake I made was HALVING the recipe... haha! My in-laws asked me to bring cookies for Thanksgiving and these are the ones! I will definitely be making these again and again! Thank you so much for posting this!
These cookies are fabulous! Chewy and just perfect for Fall. Thanks!
These really are the BEST oatmeal raisin cookies. My husband hates oatmeal raisin cookes, but he ate three of these! I have made the recipe from the Quaker oats box before and it's not nearly as good as this, even when I soak the raisins and then dry them before mixing them in.
