Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal-raisin-cookies-1024x768

Oatmeal raisin cookies may not be a holiday cookie, but they are a delicious classic.  We will be making these this year to serve along side of the prettier, fancier cookies that seem to be made for the holidays.

I like to make a double batch and make half a batch Oatmeal Raisin and half a batch Oatmeal chocolate chip.

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup(s) (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4 Cup(s) firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2 Cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 3 Cup(s) Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1 Cup raisins
