Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

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


  1. 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.
  2. Bake at 350 degree for 15-18 minutes.  Cool on pans for 3 minutes then remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
