From the cookbook "A Chocolate Christmas" this is a bit different from the other recipes posted here with the addition of the milk and cinnamon. Makes for a great holiday cookie but also a cookie for anytime of the year - especially lunch boxes! Sometimes I skip the raisins and just add in chopped walnuts or dried cranberries for an even more unique flavor.
- 1 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 (11 1/2 ounce) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1⁄2 cup raisins (dried cranberries work great too)
- Preheat oven to 375°F
- In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt - mix with a whisk.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla until creamy.
- Beat in the egg.
- Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, mix well.
- Add the milk and blend completely.
- Stir in the chocolate chips, oats and raisins.
- Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are crisp.
- Let cool for 3-5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
