Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are easier than you think! In less than 30 minute you can have old fashioned oatmeal raisin cookies ready to enjoy!


Scale

Ingredients

 

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1.5 cups raisins

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray, parchment paper, or line with a silicone mat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, vanilla, sugar, butter, and eggs. Mix on low speed until blended then beat on high until breamed together and light and fluffy.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to mix.
  4. Add the dry mixture into the creamed mixture and stir until just blended. (Over-mixing will cause cookies to be tough instead of soft.)
  5. Fold in oats and raisins.
  6. Scoop dough with a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop or roll into 2 tablespoon balls and place on prepared cookie sheet at least 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Allow cookies to sit on the baking sheet 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

Notes

  • Do not over-mix dough when adding dry ingredients to wet to ensure cookies end up soft rather than tough.
