Grampa’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2c butter, softened
  • 1/2c brown sugar
  • 1/2c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4c flour
  • 1c old-fashioned oatmeal (not quick-cooking)
  • 1c raisins (can also use chocolate chips, or M&Ms)

Instructions

  1. Cream butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, until well incorporated. Add vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Sift in baking soda and flour and stir to mix. Add oatmeal and raisins and stir in until well-mixed. Dough will be quite stiff. Don’t worry, keep going (you can even use your hands if you like).
  2. Scoop by rounded tablespoon-fuls onto a greased or lined baking sheet (I like using parchment paper). Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are golden and middles aren’t quite set. Allow to cool 1-2 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.
  3. Makes about 2 to 2 1/2 dozen cookies
