Oatmeal Raisin (or chocolate!) Cookies

I saw this recipe the other day over at the Homesteading Housewife and tried it out last night. I knew that Jarom isn't the biggest fan of raisins baked in things, and I don't have any raisins in my pantry any way, so I just substituted them for chocolate chips and they were very tasty!

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients
  • 2 Cups all-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Then Add
  • 3 cups oats (NOT instant)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups raisins
Directions
  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees f.
  2. whisk dry ingredients together, set aside.
  3. combine wet ingredients with mixer on low speed to combine; Turn mixer speed to HIGH and cream together until color lightens and the mixture is light and fluffy.
  4. Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture until no flour is visible (DO NOT OVER MIX!!)
  5. Add Oats and raisins and stir to combine.
  6. Drop Approx 2 tablespoons of dough onto a greased cookie sheet spaced about 2 inches apart.
  7. Bake 11-13 min (on center rack of oven) until golden, but still moist in the cracks.
  8. cool on cookie sheet for approx 2 min before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. ENJOY!!
