Yummy Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


Yummy Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Everyone in my family knows that oatmeal raisin cookies are my favorite cookie. Many years ago Jamie made these yummy chewy oatmeal raisin cookies for me and I just couldn't stop eating them. These cookies for sure lived up to the name, yummy and chewy.

These were so good that I had to have the recipe. Jamie wrote it all down for me and I tucked away and never made them. After digging through some old recipes I came across this recipe and knew that I had to make these again.

Many people don't like raisins. Well, I happen to like them, especially in these soft chewy cookies. These cookies are made with brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. They are soft chewy and bursting with flavor.

Oatmeal cookie mixture

The complete ingredients and instructions will be below, but the first thing to do is to make this mixture. Mix the eggs, vanilla, and raisins in a medium bowl. Cover and put this in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

Yummy Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Ingredients:

3 eggs beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup raisins
2-1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups oatmeal

  1. In a medium bowl beat the eggs, add the vanilla, and raisins cover, and refrigerate for one hour.
  2. In another bowl, beat and cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.
  3. In a third bowl mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter and sugar mixture. Mix until all of the flour is absorbed.
  5. Stir in the egg and raisin mixture, then add the 2 cups of oats.
  6. The mixture will be stiff. Drop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper with a tablespoon. I used a #70 cookie scoop for this.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes until cookies are brown around the edges.
