We went to my friends house few months ago and she had these fantastic oatmeal cookies out for us to try. Asked her where she found the recipe and she said she searched for the “best” oatmeal cookies recipe. I did the same and came across this AWESOME oatmeal cookies recipe .
Oh…these cookies are gonna be kids favorites…and knowing that it is made with oatmeal makes me feel less guilty while my kids are eating them.
The original recipe calls for 1 cup brown and 1 cup white sugar but I used only 1 cup brown total and it was sweet enough.You can definitely add more sugar per your taste.
1 cup raisins
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 ½ cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
2 cups rolled oats
¾ cup chopped pecans
Add a handful of chocolate chips to make it more AWESOME!
1.Combine beaten eggs, raisins and vanilla. Cover and chill for 1 hr.
2.Preheat oven for 350 degrees.
3.In medium bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar.
4.In another bowl, combine flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. 5.Add the creamed mixture and stir.
6.Add the chilled egg and raisin mixture, then add rolled oats and pecans.(if you add chocolate chips, add it to the mix now)
6.Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet and bake for about 12-12 minutes, until the edges are golden.
Allow cookies to cool on wire rack completely.
