Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Thanks to my husband for finding this recipe on the back of the Safeway oats carton.  Here is recipe #3 from my cookie baking stash:

Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

  • 2 sticks softened unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 c packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 c Safeway Old-Fashioned Oats cereal
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 c golden raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat butter, brown sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time and mix thoroughly.  Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and then add oats.  Mix it together.  Put mixer on slow speed and slowly add dry mixture until thoroughly blended.  Add chocolate chips and mix together.  Then add golden raisins and mix until incorporated.  Using a small scoop, drop by the scoopful onto cookie sheet.  Bake for 10-13 minutes and rotate the baking sheets halfway through.  Cookies will be soft, but will firm up as they cool.  Makes about 45 cookies.

I love oatmeal raisin cookies and find these to be quite exceptional because of the spice mixture and unexpected surprise of the golden raisins.  My husband and I discovered long ago that recipes on the back or inside of packages usually are the best because they want you to use their product.  Kudos to my husband for discovering this recipe and being my chief cookie tester!

Happy baking!
