Soft, Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
January 29, 2014 1 Comment
Catching onto the trend?? Soft and chewy cookies are on trend apparently. The baking mood has yet to subside and with a meeting for work, I figured it would be a great opportunity to bake something and have someone else eat it. :-)
It was a great life decision to bring those cookies to our meeting because everyone absolutely loved them…and I didn’t have to eat too many of them.
|1 Cup Softened Butter||1 Cup White Sugar|
|1 Cup Light Brown Sugar||2 Eggs|
|1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract||2 Cups All Purpose Flour|
|1 Teaspoon Baking Soda||1 Teaspoon Salt|
|1 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon||3 Cups Quick Cooking Oats|
|1 Cup Raisins|
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a mixer, beat the butter, white sugar and light brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Then add in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla.
2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Gradually add the flour mix to the wet mixture. Mix in the oats and them raisins.
3. Cover the cookie sheets in tin foil and place 1 inch dough balls onto the sheet. Bake them for about 9 minutes and allow them to cool on the cookie sheet to harden them a bit. Then remove them and fully cool them on a cooling rack.
Just a little side note too, you can always make these cookies a little crispier by extending the time they are in the oven.
Since going a little cookie crazy this past weekend, you won’t even guess where that ended up for me. I definitely took a swing to the other side after cookie overload. I’ll let you in on the next post.
