You've made oatmeal-raisin cookies before, so why try these? Because they're moist, chewy and loaded with raisins - and they're better than any you've tried before! From Cuisine Magazine
Whisk together and set aside
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
Cream wet ingredients
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
Then stir in
- 3 cups oats (not instant)
- 1 1⁄2 cups raisins
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Whisk dry ingredients; set aside.
- Combine wet ingredients with a hand mixer on low.
- To cream, increase speed to high and beat until fluffy and the color lightens.
- Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture until no flour is visible.
- (Over mixing develops the gluten, making a tough cookie.) Now add the oats and raisins; stir to incorporate.
- Fill a #40 cookie scoop and press against side of bowl, pulling up to level dough (to measure 2 tablespoons of dough).
- Drop 2-inches apart onto baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray.
- Bake 11-13 minutes (on center rack), until golden, but still moist beneath cracks on top.
- Remove from oven; let cookies sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
WOW!! These are the BEST oatmeal raisin cookies ever!! Soft, moist, chewy, the texture is perfect! I used unsalted butter and added 1/2 t cinnamon. These cookies are as good as any bakery sells. This will be my oatmeal cookie recipe from now on! Thanks Bev!!!
I swear on a stack of cookbooks that these cookies are near to perfection! I like oatmeal cookies (BUT only when they're soft and chewy; I don't like crispy oatmeal cookies) but my son and hubby don't like 'em at all. With anticipation of a personal oatmeal-cookie-feast, I halved this recipe and whipped up the batch this afternoon -- easy to prepare. I made one change with regards to ingredients: I soaked the raisins in some hot water and dark rum for about 15 minutes, then drained well. As for preparation, I used a small scoop, baked them for just 10 minutes, and they were (are!) divine -- soft and tender and chewy. My yield (small scoop, half of this recipe) was 41 cookies. A true Hall of Fame cookie, Bev!
These cookies are fantastic! Otis Spunkmeyer Bakery-style cookies that are so chewy. The only thing that you can do to make these cookies better is a glass of milk ; ) YUMMMMMMMMM Definitely not enough stars, these cookies deserve 10 stars Thanks so much Bev!
