Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, or the only way to keep my husband out of the cookie jar!

The one way to keep my husband out of the cookie jar is to make something he doesn’t like and he likes just about everything. Everything that is but raisins. So in an effort to keep him on his diet I’m making cookies with raisins.  If they have oatmeal in them they’re healthy right?


Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1 cup butter, slightly softened
1 1/4 brown sugar
1/2 granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla paste
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cream together butter with brown and white sugar.  Incorporate eggs, milk and vanilla paste. I like using vanilla paste in a lot of my recipes in place of regular vanilla. I think it has a more intense flavor.  if you would like to try vanilla paste in your recipes simply substitute it in 1 for 1.

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. And add the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture.  Once combined stir in oats and raisins.  Chill mixture in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

With a small scoop, scoop rounds onto a Silpat or parchment paper.  Bake for 9-10 minutes.


Cookie, cookie, cookie thats for me!
