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!people found this review Helpful.

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!!!people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful... Was this review helpful to you?

These are absolutely delicious! I HATE raisins, and the cookie itself is so good, I even enjoy the raisins. I can't wait to substitute chocolate chips for the raisins. Everyone who ate one of these cookies LOVED them - lots of compliments! Thanks for this classic recipe.people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful...

Good cookies! I really liked the addition of coconut to the traditional oatmeal raisin cookie and the spices are perfect. They came out a little more cakey than chewy, but the flavor is really good regardless.people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful...
