Yield Makes 3 dozen medium-size cookies

Number Of Ingredients 12

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, using a spatula, cream together butter, sugar, and salt. Add egg, vanilla, and 1/4 cup water; mix until well combined.
  • In another large bowl, mix together flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg. Fold into the butter mixture until well combined. Add raisins and stir until well combined.
  • Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop, scoop out cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Transfer baking sheets to oven, and bake until edges begin to brown, about 20 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies were a little too sweet for my taste, but they were still good.

These cookies were easy to make and turned out great! I used quick oats instead of rolled oats and they still came out perfect.

I'm not a huge fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, but these were actually really good! The raisins were plump and juicy, and the cookies were soft and chewy.

These cookies were so easy to make and they tasted amazing! I used golden raisins instead of regular raisins and they added a really nice flavor. I'll definitely be making these again.

I made these cookies last night and they were delicious! The only change I made was to add a little bit of cinnamon to the dough. They turned out perfect and I will definitely be making them again.
