These are the most delicious oatmeal raisin cookies EVER!! The spices seem a little bizarre, but they are perfect (I suggest following the recipe closely and leaving all the spices in). I guess they are more of a sophisticated oatmeal cookie, if such a thing is possible. I think I got this recipe from allrecipes.com.
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 pinch ground cloves
- 1 pinch cayenne
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups oats
- 1 cup raisins
- Cream together butter/margarine and sugar, then beat in egg and vanilla.
- Sift together flour, spices, baking soda and salt, and mix in.
- Add oats and raisins and mix well.
- Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375ºF.
Excellent cookies!! I was slightly skeptical due to the cumin, which I enjoy but know some people don't care for at all, and was wonderfully surprised...yummy! Just a note for people who are concerned about texture (cake-like as opposed to crispyish) these were in-between to me. Just plain delicious. Thanks for sharing.
Yum! These aren't your average oatmeal raisin cookies... that cumin really adds a nice touch.
Tried these in a hurry for an unexpected invite to a friend's cottage to enjoy the autumn colours here in Ontario, Canada! They are delicious and so easy to whip up in my mixer. thanks so much! I'll be making these often. geoval2
