I love oatmeal cookies that have cinnamon in the dough. These have the cinnamon plus can sub chocolate chips or other dried fruit for the raisins. Found on Land O Lakes website.
- 1 1⁄2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons water
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups quick-cooking oats, uncooked
- 1 cup raisins (or chocolate chips)
- Heat oven to 350°F Combine brown sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs, water and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low. Add all remaining ingredients except oats and raisins; beat until well mixed. Stir in oats and raisins.
- Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
Mmmm... soft and delicious! I made half a recipe to take with me to the phone centre for the help line I help out with once a month - I figured the 27 cookies I got [i]should[/i] feed the three of us ;)! Great flavours here, the vanilla and cinnamon were perfect, and for variety, I used both sultana and golden raisins. I DID double the amount of raisins, using the full 1 cup for the half recipe I made. Absolutley wonderful! Thanks for posting, diner! Made for Sweet Traditions Tag.
Super YUM. I went a little nuts and cut the recipe in half and then doubles their size for a dozen big cookies. Used a 3/4 measuring cup packed it a little less than half full of Splenda brown, 1/4 cup of egg white and a heart healthy margarine and old fashioned oats. Then I went way off track and used a scant tsp of butterscotch extract for the water (still keeping the vanilla) and added 1/2 a cup of white chocolate chunks for the raisins (you did say "or chocolate" lol). The end result are scrumptious cookies that are large but still soft if not chewy, baked for 15 mins because of their size, that smell as good as they taste. I mean, cinnamon, butterscotch, vanilla and white chocolate! How could you possibly miss??
Made these for the DH to take to his music recreation group where they were very much enjoyed. I got 44 large cookies and baked them at 175C fan forced oven for 10 minutes. I didn't use raisins but 1/2 cup of sultanas and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips but otherwise followed as per recipe. Thank you diner524, made for Putluck Tag to take to Holies Make It Instead of Buy It Party.
