Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


My sister seems to think the only reason one would eat an oatmeal raisin cookie is because you thought it was an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.  Do you agree? I don’t.  I think there’s so much to love about the combination of cinnamon, oats and raisins.  These cookies are great with a cup of tea or after enjoying Easter brunch.  You can even use golden raisins just like me.  Try them and let me know what you think.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (makes 2 dozen cookies)
1 stick dairy free butter (such as earth balance)
1/3 c sugar
1/3 c brown sugar
1 egg or egg substitute
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 c old fashioned oats
3/4 c raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and mix.

In a separate bowl combine, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and oats.  Slowly add oat mixture to butter mixture until just combined.  Stir in raisins.

Using a tablespoon measure, drop cookie dough onto parchment paper lined sheet pans.  Flatten slightly with a damp hand.  Bake for 12 – 14 minutes until lightly brown around the edges.  Transfer cookies to a baking rack and cool completely.
