Recipe by Kimberly Arp
READY IN: 18mins




  • First, you put the raisins in a small pan of water uncovered and cook till puffy.
  • Put in strainer to drain and cool.
  • (I rinse them under cool water to cool them off quicker) Cream and beat together (using elect. mixer) the butter, brown sugar, and eggs.
  • Mix together the flour (unsifted), soda, baking powder, cinnamon, oatmeal and add to the creamed mixture, using beater to mix.
  • Last, add the raisins.
  • With a spoon, mix them in ever so lightly.
  • Drop by teaspoonfuls on lightly greased cookie sheets.
  • (I use cooking spray) I sometimes use Tablespoonfuls to make bigger cookies!
  • Bake them between 350*-360* for 8-9 minutes.
  • Take them out before they get brown!
  • Cool for a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet before transfering to waxed paper to cool completely.
  • Enjoy!
