O is for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

          My dad's favorite type of cookies are oatmeal raisin. Therefore, I make them often. There is only one recipe that I use. Ironically, it is the recipe that is on the back of the Quaker Oats container. This is also one of the only recipes that I do not modify in one way,  shape, or form. It is a great recipe that creates some really good oatmeal raisin cookies!

Usually my cookies look a lot less perfectly
shaped than this. Mine are all different shapesand sizes.

    • 1/2 Cup(s) (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
    • 3/4 Cup(s) firmly packed brown sugar
    • 1/2 Cup(s) granulated sugar
    • 2 Eggs
    • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
    • 1-1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
    • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
    • 3 Cups of Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
    • 1 Cup of raisins

Heat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, beat butter and the 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 lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Enjoy!


  1. These are actually some of my favorite deserts. I will try your recipe.

  2. These cookies really do come out good! You will see!

  3. I'm with your Dad. These are my favorite type of cookie also. Again, unfortunately, I can't have the regular flour or the oats. This is probably one of the things I miss most. In the past I used to use this very same recipe.
