a very chewy yummy cookie!
I have previously mentioned that normally when I go sweet in the kitchen I tend to prefer the vegan variety but with zero apologies I tell you that these are not vegan and they are so so good!
I know how some of you feel about raisins so add chocolate chips instead but I truly feel sorry for you. The raisins add a sweet chewiness that chocolate can not replicate. DO not get me wrong I would much rather sit down with some chocolate over a raisin most days but for these cookies chocolate loses.
So easy, so quick. Make them!
I usually make this whole amount then bake off some big beautiful cookies everyday for a few days but go ahead and freeze the dough if you do not plan on eating cookies everyday for awhile! HeeHee
1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned & levelled)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup raisins
Step 1-The WET
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, (or in a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, or get a work out and mix with a wooden spoon!) cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar for 1-2 minutes until well combined. Add the eggs one at a time and vanilla extract and mix until fully combined.
Step 2-The Dry
Combine Flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and mix well
Step 3-The Dough
Slowly mix in the flour mixture and continue mixing until just combined, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Remove bowl from the stand and stir in the oats and raisins by hand.
*If you can, let this sit in the fridge covered for 30 min, or make the day before. That being said, I simply could not justify being that patient and had my oven preheating while I got these together!! lol
Step 4-The Bake
I make huge cookies! I mean I think on a satisfaction level I like having one massive cookie over a few small ones but truthfully the more accurate reason is I use my ice cream scoop to get uniform sized cookies and baby that it is one big scoop!!
I usually make 6 cookies on my half sheet that I cover with my silicone mat.
They Bake at 350 for 14 min then I let them sit for 5 on the hot baking sheet before I move them to a wire rack if I am proper or a plate if I am hungry!
The rest of the dough goes in my fridege or freezer for future cookie adventures!
What is your fave thing to bake?
