So with that being said I really wanted to share this recipe with you all! I have been craving Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies, I usually don't make them because my family despises raisins but then I was like that just means I get them all to myself....YAY!!!! (then I found out that my son actually likes them). Oh Well!
These will make a nice treat to stick in the kids lunch boxes this fall as you can make them bite sized using a small sized cookie scoop!
Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quick cooking old fashioned oats
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips (you can use whatever kind you like)
Cream together butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir this into the butter/sugar mixture. Add in the oats, raisins and chocolate chips.
Scoop cookies and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet. I use a small scoop for more bite sized cookies (you will get about 2 1/2 dozen cookies) and bake in a pre-heated 350°F oven for about 13 minutes. I like my cookies soft and chewy so I take them out slightly underbaked but brown around the edges. For a crispier cookie let them stay in a little longer.
Enjoy and remember to EAT DESSERT FIRST!
