Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


These cookies were the best seller from a cookie business we had. We shipped all over the country and now we’re sharing the recipe with you. My husband’s favorite trick is to have me make cookie balls and leave them in a bag in the refrigerator. Every night he flattens them and pops them in the toaster oven for 12 minutes. Nirvana – hot cookies before bed.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 ½ teaspoon vanilla
2 ½ cups organic flour (280 grams)
2 cups oats
1 cup raisins
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter and sugar in the mixer until light and fluffy using a paddle attachment. Beat in eggs and vanilla stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda, salt, oats and raisins. Add this flour, oat and raisin mixture into the creamed ingredients and incorporate on low speed. Using an ice scream scoop,  (with a 3 Tablespoon capacity) scoop the cookie dough wiping off excess. Put the balls on a silpat or parchment lined cookie sheet. Lightly dampen the bottom of your fingers and press down on the cookie. Bake for 9 minutes and rotate the pan. Bake for 5 minutes more. Let cool for a couple of minutes and transfer to wire cooling racks.
