chewy oatmeal raisin cookies!

Oatmeal raisin cookies are not my favorite cookie. They aren’t even one of my favorites, but whenever I make them I think so myself, “Wow, I forgot how good these are” or “I guess a cookie doesn’t need chocolate in it after all”. You may be wondering why I even decided to make them – and to be honest, I couldn’t tell you – but I am glad that I did. They are chewy and buttery and the perfect amount of raisin-y and even though they aren’t my favorite cookie, they still are incredible – I can’t help but eat three at a time.


What you need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 3/4 cup raisins.

Preheat oven to 350. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Add your dry ingredients and mix until flour is no longer visible. Add your oats and raisins by hand with a spoon. Scoop rounded tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes. Cool on wire rack. ENJOY!
