Recipe by Mommy Diva
READY IN: 33mins




  • Set the oven rack in the middle position then preheat the oven to 350 degrees; Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Sprinkle the whiskey or rum over the raisins in a bowl and let stand while you assemble the batter. (most of the liquid will be absorbed by the raisins).
  • Beat the butter, applesauce, brown sugar, granulated sugar and salt using a handheld or standing mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, around 2 to 3 minutes. (be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl halfway through).
  • Beat in the egg and egg white, milk and vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon, add to the batter, and beat just until the flour is absorbed then gently fold in the oats and raisins with a rubber scraper.
  • Use 2 spoons or a small (mini ice cream scoop for portion control) to scoop out the batter by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake until the cookies are set but still soft in the centers and beginning to brown on the edges, 17 to 20 minutes.
  • Let cool on a wire rack.
