oatmeal raisin cookies
I made these last night after eyeing this recipe for a while at smittenkitchen.com. I prefer them with chocolate chips, but my boyfriend ate six in a row, rapid fire, with just raisins. Needless to say, they’re a nice treat either way.
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. (90g) all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4-1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
3/4 c. raisins
chocolate chips, 3 per cookie (optional)
cream butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. in a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. stir dry ingredients into brown sugar mixture. stir in oats, raisins and any other mix-ins.
chill dough for a while before forming into tablespoon-sized balls, and bake at 350 until golden brown just around the edges, about 8-10 minutes.
