Oatmeal (C)Raisin Cookies

by Chelsey on July 19, 2010

So I really wanted to share the cupcakes I made for the fourth of July but my computer and/or camera are being funky and saying I can’t upload pictures but don’t fret because I still got something for you!

These are very good cookies.  I mean so good they wont last sitting on your counter.
Oatmeal cookies = yummy.  Oatmeal raisin cookies = blech.  I am not a fan of the wrinkly fruits but will choose Craisins over raisins any day.
I made these extra large, 1/4 cup batter per cookie, and baked them for around 15 minutes to achieve a gooey and chewy center with a semi-crispy edge–perfection my dears.
These are made via the “creaming” method (as I learned on Good Eats) so to begin, cream the butter until super creamy (light and fluffy)

Then add in the light brown sugar. granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and mix until smooth.
Then its time to add in the vanilla and then the eggs
Starch time! Flour and oats (making my way through the oats slowly but surely)
First flour, then oats
Mix with mixer until all incorporated
Well the batter is complete, however, to take these to awesomeness I added in four different mix-ins: walnuts, white chocolate chips, craisins and semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix with a rubber spatula until homogeneous
NOW the batter is extra delicious! Use your 1/4 cup measurer and fill for each cookie.  You could divide each “lump” in half for smaller cookies (if you wanted, but I love giant cookies!)

True fact: They were still a bit soft in the center when I took them out and while transferring one to the cooling rack, if fell apart and oh boy was it delicious! Warm chocolate chips, gooey brown sugar, starchy oats and a hint of cinnamon–the perfect cookie for Cookteen :)
I brought a batch of these to work the other day and they were a hit! And just what we wanted to have after working in the hot sun for a few hours…cookies make good snackage.Off to sleeps for a LONG day of life-guarding tomorrow! Hopefully I will get to show you my rad cupcakes, teaser alert: they had tye-dyed frosting!!

With love and cupcakes,

People in the world receive the business loans in various banks, because that is comfortable.

This is the third recipe I have used on your site and it was amazing. I’ve been making your blueberry muffins for months now and I wanted to try something different, so I tried out the blondies. They’re INSANE! I love them. Then I was really bored and I figured why not just keep baking. So then I made these and they’re delish. Keep the recipes coming!
