I’ve been hankering for some homemade Oatmeal Raisin Cookies for some time. Today I made a batch using this recipe. I halved the recipe and added 2 T. of honey. Here’s the recipe, as I tweaked it.
* 1 cup brown sugar
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 cup butter [I used one stick of unsalted butter and one stick of Parkey margarine.]
* 2 eggs
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 2 Tablespoons honey
Add the dry ingredients and mix well:
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 2 cups flour
* 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (regular)
* 1 1/2 cups raisins
* 1 1/2 cups nuts [I omitted these.]
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. I used a small scoop to put the dough on the cookie sheet. Easy and quick.
Bake at 375* for 9 minutes. Check you own oven after 8 minutes. Temperatures will vary from oven to oven and the time should be adjusted accordingly. Don’t let the cookies over brown or they will be hard.
Let the cookies cool for a minute or two before removing them from the cookie sheet to the cooling rack. They will hold their round shape better, if allowed to cool slightly before moving.
This recipe made 7 dozen cookies.
