Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Another classic! As much as I hate oats, granola, and especial oatmeal (blecchhh) these are one of my favorite cookies. Easy to make as well, and the recipe I use is from the Quaker Oats can!

-1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
-3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
-1/2 cup granulated sugar
-2 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
-3 cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
-1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy.

Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.

Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well.

Add oats and raisins; mix well.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. (I used parchment lined cookie sheets which when the cookies bake, doesn't allow the cookies to spread very much. If you don't want dome shaped cookies, push them down a bit before baking)

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

Enjoy! :)
