Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Chris’s favorite cookie is oatmeal raisin and it had been a while since I’d made him any. About a year ago he returned to school and I’m so very proud of him for doing so. I’m of the belief it doesn’t matter how old you are and honestly, the time will pass regardless. You can’t go wrong with education. So to celebrate (though I use that word loosely, it is a college algebra class, after all) his new class, I made him a batch of his favorite. This is the tried, true, and trusty recipe on the back of the Quaker Quick Cooking Oats box.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla; beat well. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon and add into the creamed mixture; mix well. Stir in the oats and raisins. Drop by rounded tablespoons and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely before storing.
