Usually oatmeal cookies aren’t my favorite. For example, given a choice of oatmeal raisin cookies and chocolate chip ones, I would usually pick the chocolate chip ones. But these are so good that I think I will make these regularly from now on. They are not too sweet and are just very slightly chewy – the ideal texture of a cookie. The only thing I will do differently next time is to use brown sugar instead of light brown sugar, so they will be more brownish color.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (I used light brown sugar)
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup regular oats
- 1/2 cup raisins
- Beat the first 6 ingredients with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add flour and oats to egg mixture, and beat until blended. Stir in raisins. Drop by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets.
- Bake at 350 degree for 15-18 minutes. Cool on pans for 3 minutes then remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
