Ultimate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
My grandson, Caleb, loves oatmeal raisin cookies. He is turning 16 tomorrow so Grandma had to bake him his favorite cookies. I guess he takes after his grandma because I love them also. Yum!
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
- 11/2 cups raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine butter and both sugars in mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and continue to mix until light and fluffy. (Color will lighten)
Mix your flour, baking powder, baking powder and salt together and add in the butter mixture. Mix just until combined. Over mixing may cause your cookies to be tough.
Then with spoon, stir in the oatmeal and raisins until combined.
Bake 11 to 13 minutes until golden, but still moist beneath cracks on top.
Remove from oven; let cookies sit on baking for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
