      These are about as close to the platonic ideal of an oatmeal raisin cookie as I can ever hope to find; crispy on the edges with chewy but not doughy centers, a real find after years of flaccid overly sweet failures.

      I plumped the raisins in hot brandy and used dessicated coconut instead of flaked to make up the moisture difference (I didn't adjust the flour). Also, because I live in Mexico where the standard granulated sugar is actually light brown instead of the super-refined white we get in the states, I used a cup and a half of that, omitting the brown sugar, and called it good.

      I let the dough rest for a few hours to develop the gluten for extra chewiness, then rolled and flattened them using the bottom of a glass. They didn't spread much and took about 12 minutes to bake on a greased (seriously, don't forget the grease) cookie sheet.

      If there's one criticism, it's they're a *teensy* bit eggy, but eggs here tend to be a lot more intensely flavored than their US grocery store counterparts, so if you're using strong-flavored eggs from a local farm, you might want to omit one yolk.

      Thank you, Chef Itchy Monkey, for my new go-to oatmeal raisin cookie recipe. It's been a long time coming!

      Lovely flavour with nice spiced kick. If you are using a fan forced oven, make sure you adjust! I think a few chocolate chips would be nice too!

      Used all unsalted butter, kosher salt, golden raisins & added a cup of crumbled pecans - what a DELICIOUS cookie! Made immediately w/o chilling - they did not spread much at all. Crispy on the edges & bottom, mildly chewy in the center - absolute go-to keeper. Cookie snob in the house raved about them. Made cookies big - 2 - 3 T apiece - still got 30 cookies! TY for a permanent fixture for oatmeal cookies here Chef Itchy Monkey!!!
